Considerations When Scaling a Nonprofit at the Local and International Level
Nonprofits often rely on organizing at the local level to carry out their mission. How does a nonprofit seeking to use chapters and affiliates to scale its mission driven work address the tension between control and autonomy? This presentation will discuss the various legal issues, risk management considerations, and strategies for successful creation of nonprofit chapters and affiliates to organize at the local and international level.
Presented by Dan Stiles, Esq., Stiles.Legal, Boulder, CO |Washington, D.C.

501(c)(6) Business Leagues and Professional Associations – What Are They and Why Do They Matter?
The Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(6) designation includes membership-based organizations that promote the business interests of their members, such as professional and trade associations and chambers of commerce. Although less well known than 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, 501(c)(6) organizations (or as the IRS prefers, “business leagues”) play a major role in the tax-exempt landscape. Almost every trade or profession has a membership organization, and almost every municipality has a chamber of commerce.  Despite many similarities, business leagues are very different from 501(c)(3) organizations and face unique legal issues, including tax, anti-trust, advocacy activities, and member discipline.
