Upcoming GPSolo CLE

The Accidental Nonprofit Lawyer

Date: August 27, 2014

Time: 1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m. ET

Credits: 1.5 General CLE Credit Hours

Panelists: Lisa A Runquist and Michael E Malamut

Moderator: Lynn Howell       


Join our expert panelists as they:

  • Discuss the ins and outs of working on a nonprofit organization’s board
  • Provide knowledge on the basics you need to know
  • Elaborate on governance, registrations, tax implications, and more

Forgot to attend the meeting of the homeowners association? The pastor gave you an offer you couldn’t refuse? As a lawyer recruited to a nonprofit board, you will be expected to address legal issues affecting the organization. Serving as a volunteer board member does not prevent you from developing a lawyer-client relationship with the organization if you are relied on for legal advice.

Don’t worry! This happens to almost every attorney! What do you do when you find yourself suddenly representing the nonprofit you are affiliated with? Our panelists will provide you with basic triage and survival tips for your new role. You will learn about governance, state registrations, choice of entity, tax implications, conflicts of interest, basic nonprofit law, and other important skills to get you on your way safely!
