Event Description

ORS 65 Changes: What Your Nonprofit Needs to Know

David Atkin - Director and Attorney, Center for Nonprofit Law

Lilisa Hall, Director of Membership, Communications & Advancement, Nonprofit Association of Oregon

What you need to know about changes to ORS 65 for your nonprofit!

The session will highlight some of the changes to ORS 65, which went into effect January 1, 2020. The statutory changes affect the way all nonprofits in Oregon work and act. The session will cover simplified rules for majority voting, allowances for voting by email, modifications to the conflicts of interest provisions and changes to a number of requirements for membership nonprofits.

This session will be presented by David Atkin - one of the members of the work group of the Oregon State Bar who reviewed ORS Chapter 65 to identify provisions that needed clarification or modernization. The group began its work in 2014 and after nearly four years and significant effort, SB360 was drafted and the bill passed into law in the last legislative session. Keep your nonprofit up to date on the rules and regulations that govern your corporate status.

There will also be time for an interactive session with our presenter by way of questions and conversation. You won’t want to miss this session!
