PLI And Atlanta Bar Offer Program On Advising Nonprofits

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 - 01:00

The Practising Law Institute and the Atlanta Bar Association will present a program to assist attorneys who advise nonprofit organizations.

The program is scheduled for Wednesday, February 3, at the Atlanta Bar Association, 400 International Tower, 229 Peachtree Street, NE, Atlanta, GA. It will run from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Any attorney interested in learning about nonprofit organizations or participants who work in-house at nonprofits will learn how the business of running a nonprofit organization has become increasingly complex. They will learn of legislative and administrative changes on both state and federal levels that have created a series of new issues for certain types of nonprofits. In addition, attendees will learn how the economic crisis has increased the need for organizations and their boards to be aware of a wide variety of legal principles governing their conduct. Participants will explore fundamental concepts, new developments in federal and state laws affecting nonprofits, as well as the new challenges and solutions for overcoming those challenges.

The faculty includes Pamela A. Mann, Law Offices of Pamela A. Mann, LLC; Sean Delaney, executive director, Lawyers Alliance for New York; Julie Floch, director of Not-For-Profit Services, Eisner LLP; and Seth I. Perlman, senior partner, Perlman & Perlman, LLP.
