Upcoming ALI CLE on Advising Nonprofits on Compensation Issues
On Wednesday, October 23, 2013, ALI CLE is offering a webcast entitled “Advising Nonprofit Organizations: Complying with Limits on Compensation, Benefits, and Other Payments.” The promotional material describes the program as follows:
[T]oday’s nonprofit organizations are under heightened scrutiny by regulators to ensure compliance with federal and state laws. Excessive compensation and other benefits given to board members, trustees, officers, or key employees can trigger the private inurement prohibition, putting the nonprofit at risk for intermediate sanctions or even losing its tax-exempt status. As a lawyer for a charity or member of its board of directors, what are your responsibilities to ensure that its income and assets don’t unreasonably benefit an “insider”?
In Advising Nonprofit Organizations: Complying with Limits on Compensation, Benefits, and Other Payments, our faculty will explain what legal advisors to, and members of, a charity’s board of directors need to know to comply with IRS and state guidelines on excess benefit transactions, including reporting and governance issues.
The attorneys teaching the CLE are Willard L. Boyd, III of Nyemaster Goode, P.C. (Des Moines, Iowa) and Lisa A. Runquist (Northridge, California).
