Your nonprofit organization can play an important role regarding legislation and politics, but there are important rules you must follow.
- Do you understand the important distinction between lobbying and political campaign activity?
- Do you know how to determine how much lobbying is permissible?
- Do you know what constitutes forbidden political campaign activity?
- What kind of election-related activities can your organization engage in?
Join our speakers as they review applicable state and federal law, and learn what your nonprofit can and cannot do to affect the political landscape.
