On April 24, 2017, I'll be presenting with Rebecca Lucero, Public Policy Director with MCN, at the Minnesota State Bar Association. We will be discussing Nonprofits and Political Activity in These Political Times. This presentation will provide an overview and specific examples on the types of issues most nonprofits need to consider in order to manage the risks that exist with engaging in advocacy activities, particularly during these times when organizations may be expanding their advocacy and lobbying work. Register here, by April 20th.

I don't often address employee benefits issues on this blog because I don't myself practice in that area. However, a new law that just passed reinstates (to a degree) a health care reimbursement option that some smaller nonprofits may be able to take advantage of! Since I know only enough to get in trouble in this area, I asked my good friend Jewelie Grape to give me a summary. If you want to know more, I suggest you contact her directly or let me know and I would be happy to put you in contact with her!
