Upcoming Events for Nonprofits:
- Nonprofit Bylaws Consultation, on Tuesday, May 17th, 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM via Zoom. Apply for this consultation by following this link
Bylaws serve as the main governing document of your organization; the bedrock upon which its foundation rests. When bylaws are not carefully created and maintained in accordance with the best practices outlined in your Articles of Organization, cracks may start to appear in this foundation, hampering your work and taking away from your organization’s mission and resources.
Apply to join us for a two-part training and consultation program on bylaws and corporate governance issue spotting. The 75-minute training will focus on the mechanics of the bylaws and give you practical tips for how to use these documents in your operation. The subsequent 90-minute consultation session will be staffed by lawyers from Weil. They will review your current bylaws or assist you in creating a new policy and make recommendations as necessary.
This is designed for any nonprofit looking to change, update, or create bylaws, from established longstanding nonprofits to those who have just incorporated and want to make sure they have legally-sound bylaws.
