Your Bylaws – An Update for NYS Arts Organizations:
What You Don't Know Can Hurt You [NYSCA Webinar]
Presented by Michael West, Esq., Legal Advisor
NYCON's Mid Hudson Valley Office
Many nonprofit arts staff and board members may think that bylaws are just something you have to do have to start your organization. Bylaws are drafted, reviewed, approved and promptly shelved away. What some don’t realize is that your arts organization is continually governed by that document and, as such, bylaws spell out what you can and can’t do by way of good board governance.
If these terms and phrases aren’t familiar to you…Amendment, Construction, Indemnification, Dissolution, Committee Structure…NYCON invites your arts organization to join us for this free webinar. Our workshop is designed to help you understand key bylaw clauses, how they affect your arts organization and how the new developments in New York regarding nonprofits may impact your bylaws.
*Please note: this webinar is open only to NYSCA funded organizations.
