Nonprofit Issues® and the Philadelphia law firm of Montgomery McCracken will present the 26th annual “This Year in Nonprofit Law” on Thursday, November 10, 2016.
Nadya K. Shmavonian, Director of the Nonprofit Repositioning Fund in Philadelphia, will provide the keynote presentation on “Strategic Alliances and Restructuring: The Overview From an Encouraging Collaboration of Funders”. The Repositioning Fund has been created by a group of nine primarily regional funders to assist nonprofits considering strategic alliances, mergers, acquisitions and other long-term collaborations with both exploratory and implementation grants. Nadya previously served as president of Public/Private Ventures (P/PV), executive vice president of The Pew Charitable Trusts and vice president for strategy at the Rockefeller Foundation. Having worked both in philanthropy and as a nonprofit leader, Nadya has still found much to learn from her new vantage point during the Fund’s first year of operations. She is prepared to share her candid observations on the promise — and the challenge — of long-term collaboration in the region and nationally.
We will begin the morning with our panel of lawyers who deal with nonprofit legal issues every day reviewing the most important legal developments for nonprofits during the last year.
The first round of afternoon breakout sessions will include:
- Mergers, Acquisitions and Collaborations
- Transgender Issues for Nonprofits
- Charitable Giving Issues
The second round will feature:
- Implementing the new Fair Labor Standards Act rules
- Ethical issues for lawyers and executives
The program will provide 5 hours of continuing legal education credit for Pennsylvania lawyers, including an hour of ethics credit for those attending the ethics session, and 5 hours of CPE for Pennsylvania accountants.
Participants will receive a new or renewed one-year subscription to Nonprofit Issues®, plus program materials. The program starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 3:45 p.m. The registration fee is $155, but additional registrants from the same organization may attend for only $85. Lawyers requesting Pennsylvania CLE must pay an additional $10 for processing. We will provide you with lunch and materials.
