“A New World for Nonprofit Boards” workshop will be held on Friday, May 20, 2016 from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm at the Plattsburgh Public Library. Registration will begin at 9:00am. The New York Council on Nonprofits (NYCON) will addresses strategies for organizing and engaging your board to secure resources and ensure regulatory compliance. Topics include the legal, accountability, and governance responsibilities of nonprofits and the impact of the Non-Profit Revitalization Act (NPRA).
The NPRA enacted significant changes to the not-for-profit corporation law in New York State and requires a new approach to charities regulation with specific rules governing bylaws, conflicts of interest, compensation, and whistleblower protection – which affect chartered organizations as well as those incorporated through the Department of State. This workshop addresses how to implement these changes and how to meet the requirements of NYS Grants Gateway in order to be eligible to apply for grant funding in New York.
The workshop is sponsored by Lakes to Locks Passage and the Plattsburgh Public Library. This program is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
The Plattsburgh Public Library is located at 19 Oak Street, Plattsburgh, NY. The workshop is free and open to all. Lunch will be provided for $10. Registration is required, please contact Margaret Gibbs at email@example.com.
