Emily began working in the nonprofit sector during college, and has not strayed far from it since. She believes that the nonprofit sector plays an indispensible role in giving a voice to underserved communities. The combined experience of working both within the nonprofit community and as an advisor to nonprofits has provided her with the ability to understand both the culture within the organization and the particular demands that nonprofits face on a daily basis. By focusing her entire practice on the nonprofit community, she is able to better advise organizations on the unique issues that affect the sector.

I am happy to announce that I, along with Heidi Christianson at Nilan Johnson Lewis, will be co-hosting a remote viewing/participation opportunity on June 10th. The TEGE Council Gulf Coast Area will be putting an an Exempt Organization Update and is allowing remote locations to participate via Web-Ex. This is a great opportunity to hear speakers you normally only hear at larger, national conferences! For more information about the agenda and to register, please visit their website here.
Nilan Johnson Lewis is generously offering bagels and coffee for attendees that morning starting at 7:30. Lunch will be on your own at some of the wonderful food trucks that populate the area, or in the skyway. Nilan Johnson Lewis will not validate parking.
I have been told by the TEGE Gulf Coast folks that CPE has been applied for and approved for this program. Currently there is no CLE credit provided (however that may change).
