All workshops will be held at B.U.I.L.D., 5100 West Harrison, in Chicago, IL, from 10:00 am until 11:30 a.m. The fee is $25.00 per workshop up to 1 week in advance, and $35.00 at the door.

The roles and responsibilities of board members and key organizational leadership in record keeping, financial reporting and maintaining compliance
What to do if you lose tax exemption
The consequences and penalties of late filings and registrations
Which forms you need to register nonprofits and professional fundraisers
Which forms you need to file on an annual basis, including annual reports, form 990’s and AG-990’s and 941’s (payroll taxes)

We will discuss school closings in Chicago. My focus will be the impact on North Lawndale and similar communities. Andrea Zopp and Carlos Azcoitia will share their perspectives as members of the Chicago Board of Education, and Carol R. Caref will share some of the findings of CTU's research on the impacts of school closings. I will share more information as I get it. This will be a very lively discussion, and I encourage you to attend if you can.
