Issues in Nonprofit Executive Compensation - WTP speaker

Date: June 12, 2013 - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM



In just 90 minutes, this webinar maps out the key legal, tax, and perception issues surrounding nonprofit salary and benefits packages.

From governance to trends in Congress and the states, you'll learn what's putting nonprofit executive compensation in the spotlight -- plus how to reduce your risk of everything from personal monetary penalties, to state penalties or IRS revocation of your tax-exempt status. Plus, the Q&A session at the end gives you the chance to ask about executive compensation issues in your own organization.

Reserve your space now to increase your leverage and protect your executive compensation while learning how to:

  1. Anticipate the impact of increased scrutiny from both Congress and the states
  2. Negotiate pay packages that are competitive without qualifying as "excessive"
  3. Make changes to your benefits packages to help minimize potential audits and public scrutiny
  4. Avoid private inurement and intermediate sanctions in the event of a probe
  5. Defend executive compensation -- even if it's higher than average for the position
  6. Give your board more leverage against the tactics IRS uses in its probes
  7. Comply with IRS and state executive compensation guidelines, including reporting and governance issues
