Dear ACC Charlotte Members:
We are excited to bring to you a new Pro Bono Event, Legal Checkup for Nonprofits on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at Byron's South End. This event is designed for our members to work with 10 nonprofit organizations in the greater Charlotte region and provide pro bono legal advice on corporate governance, limited tax and regulatory compliance issues.
You will receive a free 1 ½ hour training during a complimentary lunch to provide you with legal background on these topics. Dianne Chipps Bailey, head of the Nonprofit Organizations and Foundations Practice Group of Robinson Bradshaw, will provide the training. A link to her bio is here: http://www.robinsonbradshaw.com/professionals-Dianne-Chipps-Bailey.html
The training will be approved for 1.5 General CLE hours. All members are welcome to attend the lunch and training, even if you cannot stay to participate in the pro bono event. Additional information about the training is here: https://www.acc.com/chapters/charlotte/index.cfm?eventID=20585
For members that register to participate in the pro bono event, we will run conflicts checks in advance to ensure that you and your company do not have conflicts with the nonprofit organization you will be serving. You will be partnered with an attorney from Robinson Bradshaw to work in teams of two to provide pro bono legal advice for 1 ½ hours to the nonprofit organizations. You do not need to be licensed in North Carolina to participate. You will be covered by malpractice insurance carried by Legal Services of Southern Piedmont, a partnering organization of this event. You will not be obligated to provide ongoing pro bono service to these organizations beyond the 1 ½ hour event.
The agenda for the event is as follows:
12:00 – 12:30 Registration
12:30 – 2:00 CLE Training During Lunch
2: 00 – 2:30 Prep Time for Attorney Teams
2:30 – 4:00 Meet and Advise Nonprofits
4:00 – 6:00 Networking Reception at Byron’s South End
The attached documents provide additional information that should answer your questions or concerns about the event.
