"Good Counsel: Meeting the Legal Needs of Nonprofits" by Lesley Rosenthal

February 17, 2014 at 8:00pm.

Rosenthal will discuss how motivated, caring and well-connected people can make a huge impact on charities.  Together let’s enrich our understanding of nonprofit governance, management and strategy – for greatest effect on our most urgent contemporary problems.  Her presentation will be energetic, artistic and engaging, using illustrations from the recent, enormously successful redevelopment of Lincoln Center in NYC  to bring the joys and challenges of nonprofit service to life. 

Good Counsel distills to their essentials the legal needs of one million public charities in the United States: nonprofit corporate law and governance, the tax exemption, and business law topics relevant to program, fundraising, finance, human resources, communications, operations, and more.
