Nonprofit Revitalization Act Compliance Plan Available

New York State Nonprofit Revitalization Act: 
Remedial Action Plan for Compliance 

$300 for Nonprofit Members of NYCON. 
Purchase includes one hour of implementation assistance.

In December 2014, the Governor signed the Nonprofit Revitalization Actinto law. It is the first major revision of New York State Not-for-Profit Corporation Law (NFPCL) in over 40 years and most of its provisions took effect July 1, 2014. The Act comprehensively reformed the NFPCL and had a significant impact on the governance policies and practices of the state's nonprofits. In order to comply with the new laws, the vast majority of nonprofits still need to amend their bylaws and/or revise or adopt new policies.

What is Included in the Remedial Action Plan for Compliance and How Can it Help Our Nonprofit?
In order to help ensure that member nonprofits are in statutory compliance in an expedient way, NYCON prepared the Remedial Action Plan for Corporate Compliance. The Plan provides a Resolution for the Board of Directors to adopt a "Statutory Compliance Article" as a bylaw amendment along with five accompanying policy documents to be attached as Appendices to the Bylaws. The Action Plan purchase also comes with one (1) free hour of implementation assistance (via phone) with a NYCON staff member.

Appendices Included in the Plan:
  1. Bylaws and Corporate Policy Definitions
  2. Board of Directors Conflict of Interest Policy
  3. Code of Ethical Conduct and Annual Potential Conflicts Disclosure Statement
  4. Whistleblower Protection Policy
  5. Audit Oversight Policy
