Training Opportunities for Charitable Organizations

2/27/2020
The Charitable Law Section provides multiple training opportunities for nonprofits throughout the state.
 
Bingo Schools are held around the state and cover details about required recordkeeping practices and other issues linked to operating bingo as a fundraiser for charitable organizations. Separate sessions are held for 501(c)3 organizations and veteran, fraternal and sporting organizations. These trainings are ideal for people considering applying for a license or for new people who have become involved with a licensed bingo operation.
 
Online registration is required. Be careful to select the proper type of training. Sessions will be held on the following dates:
  • April 22 in Cleveland
  • May 18 in Columbus
  • Aug. 24 in Columbus
  • Sept. 16 in Cincinnati
  • Oct. 28 in Columbus
Registration details can be found at https://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Business/Bingo-Operator/Bingo-School.
 
The section offers two webinars every month. At noon on the first Wednesday of each month, a webinar is offered on board governance and the legal obligations charitable board members have. A monthly webinar on the charitable registration and filings requirements of organizations is provided on the third Wednesday of each month at noon. Registration details for both monthly events can be found at https://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Business/Services-for-Charities/Charitable-Webinars.
 
A prerecorded version of the board governance webinar can also be found at the above link. Many times, organization will choose to watch the webinar together at a board meeting. Sometimes organizations will ask board members to view the webinar at their convenience by a certain date so the board can discuss issues or take any actions that might have been brought to light by the webinar.
 
Charitable Law Section staff will travel to communities to offer board governance training. Unfortunately, this can’t be done for a single organization’s board. But if you are willing to host a training and invite representatives from other organization so there would be at least 25 people present, we would be happy to discuss details.
