Legal Basics for Connecticut Nonprofits

Wednesday February 19, 2020
10:00 AM until 12:00 PM


Scrutiny of nonprofits has never been more intense than it is right now.  Nonprofit leaders – both senior staff and the members of the board – need to be familiar with the many state and federal rules that govern nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations to make sure their organization avoids any mis-steps.  Join us for this important two-hour workshop to learn about the fundamentals of nonprofit law and their application to your organization.  We’ll answer these questions and more: 

  • What are the key state and federal rules that apply to our nonprofit tax-exempt organization?  What are the consequences for failure to comply? 
  • What are the legal and fiduciary obligations of our board members?   How can the board assure ethical conduct?
  • What are the required annual filings and disclosures that we must make to agencies and to the general public? 
  • Where are our greatest legal risks?   How do we avoid them (or plan for them)?

Presenter: Priya Morganstern is the Director of the Connecticut Program of Pro-Bono Partnership which oversees the Partnership’s services statewide (other than in Fairfield County). Priya provides direct legal services to local nonprofits; connects nonprofit organizations with volunteer attorneys; lectures frequently about nonprofit and tax-exempt organization law; and trains volunteer attorneys.
