The 2016 election cycle is in full swing. We will help you understand how your nonprofit can play a role.

For 501(c)(6) trade and professional associations, learn how best to operate and grow your PAC.

Tired of prior approval? Think about a grassroots, individual membership structure.

Want to be active at the state and local level? Learn where you can use your PAC or make corporate contributions. Understand the new disclosure requirements that states are imposing on nonprofits and how you can comply.

Want to support candidates through independent expenditures? Learn whether you need a Super PAC and how you can fund your efforts. Understand the limits on political activity by 501(c)(4) and 501(c)(6) organizations. Learn what other nonprofits are doing to be active on modest budgets.

Do you think your 501(c)(3) organization has to sit on the sidelines? Think again. There are many ways your organization can be active without violating the prohibition on “campaign intervention.” We will discuss candidate debates and forums, executive activity, get-out-the-vote activities, and issue ads. You’ll be able to make a difference in this election without jeopardizing your tax-exempt status.

Speakers:
Ronald M. Jacobs, Esq., Partner and Co-Chair of Venable’s Political Law Group, Venable LLP
Lawrence H. Norton, Esq., Partner and Co-Chair of Venable’s Government Division, Venable LLP
