About the Seminar
Nonprofits are one of South Carolina's fastest growing and most popular forms of corporate entity, and recent legislative changes to key nonprofit laws foreshadow an even greater expansion. More often attorneys are being asked to serve on nonprofit boards, draw up the appropriate incorporation documents and bylaws, advise nonprofits on everything from choice of corporate form to tax issues and represent nonprofits in a wide range of legal actions.

We are proud to present the “South Carolina Nonprofit Corporation Update,” which will be a powerful look at the most critical issues lawyer's face in serving nonprofits during a time when there is a literal explosion of interest in this form of corporate entity.

The seminar features presentations from some of South Carolina's leaders in the field. Best of all, every registrant will receive a copy of the brand new second edition of the SC Bar CLE publication, The South Carolina Nonprofit Corporate Practice Manual. This practical resource includes twenty-five chapters covering virtually every aspect of nonprofit corporate practice in South Carolina. This amazing resource will serve as not only a reliable research guide, but will also provide you with valuable sample forms on CD that will enable you to quickly help your clients put together nonprofit corporations that will help them achieve their dreams.

If you serve on the board of a nonprofit, or advise or represent nonprofits, this book and seminar is one you cannot afford to miss!
