State nonprofit registration and compliance requirements can be challenging and confusing. The complexity is compounded by a lack of uniformity among the states in how registration and compliance are achieved.
Keeping abreast of these requirements, meeting state expectations, and ensuring that a nonprofit’s greatest assets, its reputation and integrity, are spared from embarrassing press in print or on the evening news are of paramount importance.
Also, with state budgets in disarray, new governance requirements and increased scrutiny at the state and federal levels, the risks of noncompliance have never been higher. The costs associated with required registration and compliance in all states, both in terms of time and money, is likely far less than the expenditures required if administrative or enforcement proceedings are initiated in just one state.
This program will give you a broad overview of state charitable and corporate compliance requirements for nonprofits and provide valuable reference information that will assist you in meeting these requirements.
