Advocacy: What Nonprofits Can and Can’t Do

What is advocacy? Can nonprofits do it? Why do people keep telling you that you’ll lose your 501(c)(3) status if you lobby on issues that affect your work?

Nonprofit staff and boards have heard – and sometimes believe – every myth about advocacy. At this seminar, you’ll learn what activities are permitted and how to use a nonprofit’s voice to influence important issues.

Our speakers are Linda Czipo, President & CEO of the Center for Non-Profits, and Sherise D. Ritter, CPA, CGFM, CGMA, PSA, a Managing Director of The Mercadien Group.

This seminar is sponsored by Borden Perlman Salisbury and Kelly.

There is no cost to attend this program, but we ask that each attendee register separately.
