InterAction, in partnership with the Venable law firm, presents an expert briefing on the major challenges facing U.S.–based NGOs operating overseas.

As U.S.-based nonprofits continue to expand their overseas activities amidst ongoing scrutiny from domestic and foreign regulators, they need to be prepared to assess their operations and establish policies and procedures to ensure U.S. and foreign compliance. This briefing will address major challenges faced and will provide practical solutions to help ensure success operating internationally. Delivered by experienced attorneys from Venable's nonprofit law practice, the briefing will focus on the identification of common issues and will provide practical advice on how U.S.-based NGOs can:

  • Enhance compliance with anti-corruption and licensing laws;
  • Develop strong financial controls;
  • Ensure adequate insurance coverage;
  • Adhere to U.S. economic sanctions and export controls; and
  • Implement effective employment procedures.
