Charitable nonprofits are required to comply with a wide array of federal and state laws and regulations. During this workshop for nonprofit staff and board members as well as attorneys, CPAs, and consultants, get answers and information on many common legal issues that affect nonprofits.

The first two hours will offer a crash course on key legal compliance issues for nonprofits, including:

  1. Basic corporate governance;
  2. Compliance with tax laws required to obtain (and maintain) 501(c)(3) status;
  3. Charitable solicitation and donor acknowledgment requirements; and
  4. Employment law basics for nonprofits.

Breakout sessions will go into more depth on corporate governance, federal tax law changes and nonprofits, and charitable solicitation. The workshop will conclude with tips on issue spotting for several common legal issues facing 501(c)(3) nonprofits.


Attorneys may earn 4 hours of CLE credit from the NC State Bar for attending (pending approval). CPAs may earn 4.5 hours of CPE credit from the NC State Board of CPA Examiners.
