Great News and Upcoming “Not To Be Missed” Nonprofit Events

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy….hence the absence of recent “notations”. But I did want to take a sec to talk about some great coverage we’ve gotten recently and exciting things coming up.

First, Capital One Spark Business was gracious enough to cover us today. I’m absolutely OVER….THE….MOON over how it turned out.  Here’s the link and a screenshot below.

Last week we also got featured as one of the top 150 nonprofit blogs, an absolute honor considering how many great blogs there are out there. To see who else made the list click here.

 

As to things to come, we’ve got a few great things coming up here in Houston.

  •  The most exciting one is an event being hosted by the Animal Law Section of the Houston Bar Association called “Lawyers to the Rescue”. Yours truly will speak on operational issues to think about when forming an exempt organization, along with a day full of other great topics. The coolest thing is you DO NOT have to be an attorney to attend  and there will be plenty of non-attorneys in the audience to sop up all the nonprofit goodness. This is an incredible event, with more information here.
  •  Another great event coming up is one of a series hosted by the United Way that covers the legal and accounting issues that nonprofits can encounter in different operational capacities. It’s been great working with this group, and I’m excited about the upcoming presentation on October 16th that will address Human Resource Issues nonprofits are facing, including help in navigating the new Affordable Care Act (dah, dah, dahhhhhh). This event has great access to top attorneys and accountants for a nominal fee.
