The guide is produced through the efforts of UALR William H. Bowen School of Law, the DHS Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support, the Arkansas Attorney Generalâ€™s Office, the Arkansas Community Foundation, and Williams & Anderson, PLC.
The legal guide is designed to help nonprofit or volunteer organizations operate in ways that are in compliance with state law and are in the best interest of their organization’s mission.
â€śFrom the birth of a new nonprofit, to structuring a board, to establishing by-laws, even established volunteers and community leaders often look for guidance,â€ť said Bowen Dean John DiPippa. â€śI am glad that so many people found the first edition â€¨of the legal guide helpful, and I hope this second edition is used even more â€¨often.â€ť
Author Bonnie Johnson practices in the areas of business litigation, appeals, employment and nonprofit law with Williams & Anderson, PLC. Before joining the Arkansas Bar, Johnson worked for Arkansas nonprofit organizations for 25 years.
