8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (ET) via Zoom
The National Genealogical Society (NGS) is hosting a Zoom meeting for Society Leaders to learn more about advocacy and lobbying. Get answers to what your organization can and cannot do.
NGS is excited to have Jeffrey S. Tenenbaum, Managing Partner, Tenenbaum Law Group PLLC, join us for an hour of information and questions from you. Jeff is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit attorneys and also is an accomplished author, lecturer, and commentator on nonprofit legal matters. Jeff counsels his clients on the broad array of legal issues affecting trade and professional associations, charities, and other nonprofits.
For 19 years, Jeff practiced law at the Venable law firm and chaired its nonprofit practice for most of that time. Among numerous other honors and awards, Jeff was the 2006 recipient of the American Bar Association’s Outstanding Nonprofit Lawyer of the Year Award and is one of only six lawyers in the prestigious U.S. Legal 500’s Not-for-Profit “Hall of Fame.” Jeff is the author of the ASAE-published book, Association Tax Compliance Guide, and currently serves as Chair of the American Bar Association’s Trade and Professional Associations Subcommittee and on the American Society of Association Executives’ Legal Advisory Council and Public Policy Committee.
