This year’s NAAG/NASCO Charities Conference will be held virtually on the afternoons of October 13 and 14, 2021. The conference is the only annual event at which charity regulators and nonprofit organizations and their attorneys, accountants, fundraisers, and advisers have the opportunity to meet, hear about, and discuss issues of interest to the charitable sector.
The sessions on Wednesday, Oct. 13 are open to the public and provide an opportunity to hear from state regulators and others in the nonprofit sector on issues of current relevance, including sessions on Fundraising and Governance: The Impact of COVID and A Brave New World of Working Together: State Law Questions Surrounding Arrangements Between Charities and Non-Charities. There will also be the opportunity for attendees to have discussions in small groups. Finally, there will be a panel of elected officials tasked with the regulation of charitable entities and assets. The agenda is subject to change; we plan to keep the website updated as the agenda is further developed.
The sessions on Thursday, Oct. 14 are open to attorney general staff, other NASCO members, and other government regulators only. Click here for a skeleton agenda for the government staff only day.
