Let's Go Legal! Getting on the Right Road to Compliance & Protection
Thursday, November 29
9 am to 12 pm
Lower Columbia College
Let's Go Legal covers the five main topics board members need to know: State Law, Federal Law, Fundraising, Employment, and Intellectual Property. Let's Go Legal shows how your organization is like a car. You need to register it with the state, driving on federal roads involves an additional set of rules, you need fuel to move your car forward (that's the money part), the people in the car matter, and the look and feel of your car make it special. It covers what you need to know about each of these topics and provides an easy checklist to make sure your organization covers it all.
We will take some deeper dives into nonprofit law topics along the way: by-laws and how to use them to strengthen your board practice, advocacy and ways to grow your mission within the public sector.

This workshop is designed for nonprofit board members or staff interested in nonprofit law basics. It is appropriate for organizations with or without staff.
Presented by Washington Nonprofits in partnership with the Office of the Secretary of State, the Nonprofit Network of Southwest Washington, and the Kelso Longview Chamber of Commerce.
