If your association is currently conducting activities inside Mainland China (or planning to), it’s critical to know what’s happening—and what’s at stake—with China’s updated Foreign NGO Law. Passed in April, the new law limits the activities and operations of foreign organizations operating inside China. The clauses and objectives of the law are important in their own right. In addition, it’s critical to understand these complex rules within the broader context of China’s evolving political and legal climate. Exactly how will these changes affect your current or future activities? What activities are most likely to trigger compliance concerns? And what can you do now to adjust your strategies?

You won the grant. You implemented an amazing program. You made a real difference in the world. So everything is a success, right? Not necessarily. Under the uniform grant guidance, funders don’t settle for what you say about your performance. They want you to document that performance. That’s why knowing how to conduct a summative evaluation can give you such an edge! Unfortunately, even seasoned grant professionals find the process challenging. But what if it didn’t have to be? In this 90-minute webinar, leading grants consultant Heather Stombaugh shows you how to turn program evaluations into a competitive advantage for your organization. From navigating the process, itself, to managing the metrics and interpreting data, you’ll learn how to document the specific ways that your program is making a difference. You’ll learn how to use fundamental data analysis and interpretation methods to uncover meaningful measures, like how people’s lives changed because of your work and the funder’s investment. You’ll also gain insight into the role of the external evaluator and how you can implement formal summative evaluation processes—with or without an external evaluator.

Starting December 1, 2016, employers (including nonprofits) will have to raise the salary of most exempt employees above $47,476—or convert them to overtime-eligible status. Their titles and positions with the organization don’t matter: they will be eligible for overtime pay. That’s why the FLSA overtime rule represents such a major challenge for already-strained budgets. Just think of the potential overtime exposure for staffing lobbying activities, conferences and events the way you’ve done in the past. Imagine the implications for salary costs, job descriptions, workplace policies and payroll practices. No wonder so many organizations have expressed concerns about fallout from the rule. Despite the concerns and confusion, you’ve still got to meet the December deadline; you must still figure out how to make the finances work. Let a top HR attorney show you how to do both—in time to make the difference.

Associations and nonprofits use contracts in every aspect of their operation. Unfortunately, not all those are “good” contracts. The fact is, it’s all-too easy to end up drafting and negotiating a contract that puts your organization at a disadvantage. Confusing terms might accidently give away your copyright and content rights and open up chances for your association to unknowingly violate contract terms. During contract negotiations, you might not realize your power to request minor changes that could result in major cost savings or service improvements. Plus, you may not know the best ways to enforce your contractual rights. Bottom line: entering into bad contracts can cost you an enormous amount of time and money. That’s why making sure your association gets good contracts can make such a difference. Here’s where to start.
