Spanish Workshop: Building a Strong Compliant Nonprofit on 9/27 in Woodburn

Presenter:  Sara Curiel Paez, Senior Consultant, Nonprofit Association of Oregon

Passion and dedication are rarely lacking in nonprofits - but strong structures, policies and procedures are also important aspects to running an effective and compliant nonprofit. During this session we will review what it takes to have a compliant nonprofit that supports its board, staff and volunteers to focus on mission impact.

This workshop is made possible through the support of The Ford Family Foundation. This workshop will be presented entirely in Spanish. If you or someone you know (e.g. a member of your staff or others in your community) speaks or understands Spanish and would benefit from this nonprofit workshop, please join us. Details below in English and Spanish. Please note: the registration page is in Spanish. Registration is required and seating is limited - register now!

Leading an Ethical, Transparent & Legally Compliant Organization Workshop 9/27 in Medford

Presenter: David Atkin, Director and Attorney, Center for Nonprofit Law

Governing for an ethical and transparent organization requires both legal compliance with relevant federal and state laws, compliance with IRS regulations, and the adoption of a wide variety of important policies and practices. Some of this work means making sure that the leaders of your nonprofit organization - both on the staff and on the Board - understand and comply with the laws and IRS regulations that require ethical conduct and transparency.

Examples include the laws and IRS regulations dealing with the proper handling of conflicts of interest, prohibited private inurement, improper private benefit, excess benefit transactions, self-dealing, and a host of other related legal topics. Some of this work to ensure more ethical and transparent organizations goes beyond complying with laws and regulations and requires groups to adopt and implement a variety of best management policies and practices. These include the adoption of an organizational code of ethics, and the adoption and implementation of a wide variety of policies requiring such things as the use of measures to prevent theft and embezzlement, the disclosure and approval of conflict of interest transactions by employees, the proper management of restricted funds, the disclosure of information regarding the organization's financial affairs and its programs and activities, and many other related topics.

In this presentation we will review many of the laws, regulations, policies and best management practices that can help you and your organizations operate in a more ethical and transparent manner. We'll start with some of the simpler topics and work our way to some of the more complex or nuanced ones.
