The first workshop of this learning series provided a framework for setting the right legal, governance, and financial habits in the early stages of organizational development. The workshop covered what it means to be a nonprofit corporation, the benefits and burdens of being a 501(c)(3) public charity, and considerations in forming and structuring a board of directors and leadership team.
