The Future of State Charities Regulation and Enforcement
A unique policy summit on the spectrum of major issues and challenges confronting state charities regulation in the United States, this conference is intended to promote dialogue among regulators, leaders from the sector, practitioners and academics. With the shared perspectives of the many and varied participants, the conference is intended to help develop proposals for improvement and further research and initiatives by regulators, academics and practitioners. A collection of articles written in advance of the conference specific to the intersection of the nonprofit sector will be made available to attendees. The conference is open to the public.
A panoply of policy topics will be addressed, including state/state and state/federal relationships; structure and funding of state charities officials; the fundamental role of states in governance issues; challenges and interest of the states in social mission/hybrid corporate organizations; the dynamic role of states in nonprofit healthcare; changing landscape of state-based charitable solicitation; jurisdiction over religious organizations; emerging issues surrounding advocacy and political activity by the sector, and proposed changes to regulatory structures.
Through funding by the NAAG Mission Foundation and Columbia Law School, a number of scholarships will be provided to attorneys general and deputy/assistant attorneys general. Scholarship recipients will be funded for round-trip coach air or train fare from their home city to New York City. The scholarship will also cover a two-night hotel stay and reimbursement for ground transportation, and all fees for the conference itself.
