On Tuesday, November 29, the New York City Bar presents Building on the ABCs: Legal Issues for Operating Not for Profits.
It will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m. at the offices of the City Bar Association at 42 West 44th Street in Manhattan.
The seminar is geared to practitioners representing nonprofits on a regular basis who are already knowledgeable on issues related to formation, obtaining recognition of tax exempt status and registration with the Charities Bureau -- topics addressed in prior seminars. At this seminar, speakers will address state and local tax exemptions; governance policies (including new rules regarding the need for investment policies and IRS rules encouraging policies on conflicts, whistleblowers and document retention); real estate issues for nonprofits; “safe harbor” rules for setting executive compensation; raffles and sweepstakes; and issues related to “friends of” foreign nonprofits.
Among the panelists are David W. Lowden, Strook & Strook & Lavan LLP; David G. Samuels, Duval & Stachenfeld LLP; Lori E. Fox, general counsel, Teachers College, Columbia University; and William F. Gaske, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP.
