The Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013, recently signed into law by Governor Cuomo, represents the most comprehensive reform of New York State's nonprofit laws in decades.
New York's nonprofits and their boards and senior management will need to evaluate their current policies and procedures to assess compliance and determine whether changes are necessary.
On February 26, Michael J. Cooney and Amish Mehta will lead an interactive discussion on the most up-to-date information on Nonprofit Revitalization Act compliance, providing detailed strategies for governing boards and senior management to implement and meet deadlines over the coming months.
- Modernizing and streamlining nonprofit governance action and communication
- Enhancing governance procedures over prohibition of employees serving as board chair, compensation approval, definition of independent director and conflict-of-interest and whistleblower policies
- Designating the responsibilities of audit committees, as well as revising audit thresholds for financial statements
- Simplifying the approval process for certain transactions, such as the ability to seek approval from the Attorney General's office instead of through the court system
