As we have done previously (e.g., click here for our second quarter 2011 Alert), Venable's Nonprofit Organizations Practice Group will share the best of the nonprofit legal articles and PowerPoint presentations (and, for our in-house seminars/webinars, recordings of presentations) published or delivered by our attorneys. Our group has put together some very interesting, useful materials that should be of help to your organization as you tackle the always-challenging array of legal issues facing nonprofits.
