The Washington Nonprofit Corporation Act and Membership – Webinar

February 8, 2022 | 12:00 pm  –  1:30 pm


Does your nonprofit organization have members?

During the 2021 Washington Legislative Session, SB 5034 was introduced and passed, modernizing the nonprofit statutes for the first time in 50 years. These changes have been a long time coming and a product of government, nonprofits, allies, and Legislators working together. Join this webinar to find out what has changed and what you need to know.

Changes to the Washington Nonprofit Corporation Act include a more comprehensive set of rules for membership corporations, comparable to other states. These provisions apply to organizations that provide in their bylaws for voting members who elect the board of directors or vote on one or more fundamental transactions of the organization. Join this webinar to learn about the detailed guidance outlined by the updated act.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is designed for membership-based nonprofit organization board members or staff interested in nonprofit changes in the Washington Nonprofit Corporation Act. It is appropriate for organizations with or without staff.
