With pressure mounting on nonprofits to consider affiliations with other organizations, this workshop is designed to help you better navigate the world of mergers, acquisitions, and affiliations. Unlike the corporate world, there are no financial "matchmakers" to help nonprofits identify successful partners for a merger.
This program will discuss the differences between mergers, acquisitions, affiliations, strategic alliances, and takeovers. It will discuss various alternative legal structures and the kind of "due diligence" investigation appropriate in considering any new relationship. It will discuss the types of procedures necessary to accomplish the goals, including the possible requirement for approval from the Attorney General.
Through a series of hypothetical examples, we will put these considerations in context for discussion in real life situations so that participants considering any new alliance can weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives. Join us to learn more about mergers, acquisitions, and affiliations!
CPE & CLE credits are available for this program; to receive credit you must register through Nonprofit Issues.
