Event Description

Beyond the 501(c)(3): Thinking Differently About Governance, Nonprofit Structure, and Social Change

Andy Robinson, Coach & Consultant, Andy Robinson Consulting, LLC

Our traditional nonprofit model -- the 501(c)(3) organization -- is a legacy structure dating back many decades. Does it still work in today's world? If not, what are the alternatives? Join us for a provocative, interactive session where we consider a broad range of options: everything from modest tweaks to board composition to entirely different governance models and legal structures. Come ready to learn about multiple examples from across the country, and feel free to bring examples and experiences of your own to share with the group!
