Question of the Week

June 18-25, 2024
I am a treasurer of a small 501(c)(3) public charity.  In the past six years, I filed a 990-N Postcard form of annual report with the IRS because we have never had more than $10,000 in gross receipts for any of the past few years. But this year we will have over $50,000.  What form should I file for our current fiscal year? Answer

This presentation addresses the art and science of drafting bylaws. 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.

Listeners will gain clarity on procedural issues.

• Understand the relationship to articles of incorporation.
• Learn whether you should be a "membership" organization.
• Determine whether your bylaws answer the question: "whose organization is it?"
• Learn how to deal with ex officio directors.
• Learn how to deal with term limits.
• Learn how to deal with board committees.
• Learn the critical issues in removal clauses.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.
