This winter, the IRS and Treasury Department issued proposed regulatory changes for 501(c)(4) organizations, also known as “Social Welfare Organizations.” Much has been made of the political activity of these groups and the extent to which their activities are funded by the “dark money” of corporations.  It is likely that new rulemaking will impact ways in which corporations interact with these social welfare organizations as well as other tax-exempt groups such as unions, charities, and membership organizations. 

On our webcast, we’ll discuss the potential impact of current and proposed rules on corporate political and philanthropic activity, how companies can ensure that they understand the changing rules, providing appropriate board oversight, ensuring against reputational injury, and can anticipate where things are headed with respect to corporate political activity regulation.

Who Should Attend: General Counsel, political compliance lawyers, government affairs professionals, corporate secretaries, heads of citizenship/CSR.
