Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has signed into law the Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013, the most comprehensive reform of New York’s nonprofit laws in decades. The new requirements, most of which take effect July 1, 2014, will require virtually all New York nonprofits and their boards to evaluate their current policies and procedures to assess compliance and determine whether changes are necessary.
Zuckerman Spaeder LLP partner Jason R. Lilien--who, as former chief of the New York State Attorney General’s Charities Bureau, was the principal author of the act--will outline the sweeping reforms along with Zuckerman Spaeder LLP partner Mitra Hormozi and EisnerAmper’s Nonprofit Practice Leader Julie Floch.
The program will conclude with a panel featuring some of New York’s most prominent nonprofit leaders discussing the impact of the legislation and the growing focus on nonprofit governance by funders, regulators, watchdogs and the media.
What you need to know about the new laws concerning independent financial audits, related party transactions, whistleblower policies and procedures, conflict of interest policies, and enhanced attorney general enforcement powers.
The new statutory procedures concerning mergers, assets sales, and dissolutions, board and member meetings, incorporation of new nonprofits, and audit filing requirments.
