Bylaws: The "Constitution" of Nonprofits
Thursday, February 15 | 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM | Webinar
Presented by: Don Kramer, Editor and Publisher, Nonprofit Issues
Moderated by: Tish Mogan, Standards for Excellence Director, PANO
Offered in Partnership with: Nonprofit Issues
Well-written and formulated bylaws help shape power relationships within a nonprofit organization, provide unambiguous procedures to prevent disputes, and reduce the risks of litigation. Bylaws should provide answers, not raise questions. Come with questions and leave with clarity and confidence in being able to recognize a workable document.
Here are some of the key issues that we will discuss:
In a line by line review of sample articles of incorporation and bylaws, you will learn how to avoid aspirational language, inconsistent language, passive tense and ambiguities. You will take home articles of incorporation and bylaws “annotated” with explanatory comments and sample forms.
CPE & CLE credits are available for this program; to receive credit you must register through Nonprofit Issues.
