Advocacy and Lobbying: What Your Nonprofit Needs To Know

June 2, 2015 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

$30 – $100

Presenters: Elaine Rose, Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest, Sheila Anderson, Campion Advocacy Fund and Stand For Your Mission and Robin Koskey, Building Changes

This seminar will examine the legal rules and requirements around advocacy and lobbying by nonprofit tax-exempt organizations in Washington State.  There are many misconceptions about whether and to what extent nonprofits can engage in lobbying and advocacy. Nonprofits can do some advocacy and lobbying, but there are limitations and specific rules regarding the type and amount of advocacy that nonprofit tax-exempt organizations can do.  We will explore the Washington State law registration requirements and the Federal tax law restrictions on tax-exempt organizations that do advocacy and lobbying.  Local experts will talk about best practices on managing nonprofit advocacy work.

$100 General Admission/Attorneys with CLE credit, $80 Wayfind Volunteer attorneys with CLE Credit, $60 nonprofit leaders

Snacks and drinks will be served.  Bring your own lunch.
