Navigating the web of federal and state regulations that govern nonprofit lobbying can be tricky. Venable attorneys Janice Ryan and Meredith McCoy will explain the key rules nonprofit organizations need to know to lobby with confidence at the federal and state levels. Discussion topics will include:

  • Federal tax limits, restrictions, and requirements for 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), and 501(c)(6) tax-exempt organizations
  • Federal and state lobbying disclosure law requirements
  • Restrictions on lobbying for recipients of federal funds
  • Federal and state ethics and gift rules
  • Grassroots advocacy compliance considerations, including digital advertising, social media, and text-messaging campaigns
