At this workshop, you will learn the basic legal framework for advocacy by nonprofits.  We will discuss the restrictions on lobbying and what is (as well as what is not) lobbying.  We will fit the restrictions on advocacy into the broader requirements for nonprofits.  The workshop also will include real life experiences from a local nonprofit. 

Participants will learn:

  1. What is advocacy?
  2. What are the limitations on advocacy for nonprofits/exempt organizations?
  3. Learn the practicalities of advocacy (compliance, reporting, real-life stories) for an exempt organization. 

Cost: $80 members, $160 non-members

Presenter: Jane Callahan, Shareholder, Dean Mead

Ms. Callahan is a shareholder in the Orlando office of Dean Mead. She represents a wide range of charities and other tax-exempt organizations, from their inception to handling tax and non-profit corporate issues.  Ms. Callahan also represents taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service to resolve tax issues at the audit and administrative appeals level, and represents taxpayers in the U.S. Tax Court and other federal courts.

Ms. Callahan represents tax-exempt organizations with numerous organizational and operational issues. Ms. Callahan and her Tax Team assist clients in selecting the initial structure of the organization, such as Section 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, Section 501(c)(6) trade associations, Section 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations and a variety of other categories of tax-exempt organizations. She also assists in evaluating the tax-exempt purposes of the organization, qualifying it as tax-exempt and complying with laws governing tax-exempt organizations.

Ms. Callahan assists clients in determining whether the organization qualifies as a Section 501(c)(3) organization, and in determining whether the organization will be classified as a public charity or a private foundation.  In addition, Ms. Callahan handles tax issues that surround the qualification, operation and transactions of the tax-exempt organization.
