Engaging in board service is an invaluable opportunity to have substantial community impact and can be one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences. Non-governing boards, such as junior boards or advisory councils, are creative tools for nonprofits to cultivate the next generation of talented leaders. These types of boards are an effective way to reach emerging leaders and add to a nonprofit's overall diversity by fostering the support of new donors.
Tuesday, September 19
2:00pm - 4:00pm

Volunteer management takes an investment of time and energy, and requires systems and processes to ensure volunteers are well-supervised and used strategically. The Great Volunteer Management System (GVMS) guide will support the design of a framework of volunteer programs to ensure that organizations formalize the role of volunteers by specifically including volunteers in strategic plans, program goals, and by creating specific roles for volunteers.
Tuesday, September 26
9:30am - 11:30am

The single most impactful tool for building a strong board and CEO partnership is assessment. Assessments help lay a positive groundwork to open conversations about performance and forge the path to a stronger partnership among board members, and between the board and the CEO. These tools and the processes for administering them allow the leadership to look honestly at strengths and weaknesses and use that information to set goals and build a robust partnership between the board and the CEO.

If you equip your employees with the necessary health & wellness information along with useful tools and resources you will empower them to take a more active role in their health. By creating a positive, safe and healthy environment for your employees, you can increase morale, improve your employees' work-life balance and, in turn, positively impact your business.
This interactive Health and Wellness Forum will focus on how to proactively plan for healthcare and ensure that your employees are leading a healthy lifestyle.
Wednesday, October 11
9:30am - 11:30am

In today's digital age, many nonprofits collect and store valuable and sensitive information about their target audience, including their client base and supporters, which comes with innumerable benefits. While such information serves to advance the sector's work, nonprofits are responsible for protecting this data in the face of persistent security threats.
Cybersecurity and digital privacy have become top-of-mind issues across the nonprofit sector and it is more important now than ever before for nonprofits to manage their legal risks. While perfect security isn't possible, assessing data risks and implementing practical security measures can help organizations minimize the likelihood and severity of cyberattacks and data breaches.

Nonprofit Uniform Guidance Implementation Survey
Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project

It has been 2 ½ years since the  OMB Uniform Guidance  went into effect. So, the question is now: Is it working? Has it streamlined processes for your organization? Is your nonprofit being reimbursed appropriately for your indirect costs?  NPCC's national association, the National Council of Nonprofits, has put together this survey, through their work with the National Task Force on OMB Uniform Guidance, to find out.

Please take the short online  Nonprofit Uniform Guidance Implementation Survey   to help us determine whether your organization has benefited from the OMB Uniform Guidance. This information will be aggregated to facilitate improvements in New York and provide information to OMB on how the implementation of the Uniform Guidance can be improved.

The survey should take you 10 minutes or less. The deadline is  September 8, 2017 .   Click here to begin survey .
Human Services Council

The GovGrader was one of the recommendations put forward in HSC's "A Call to Action: New York Nonprofits in the Aftermath of FEGS" report. The GovGrader is designed to capture the vendor business experience of nonprofit organizations that hold City and/or State human services contracts, offering organizations the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback and ratings on key dimensions of City and State government contract management. The goal of the survey is to create a data set and annual state-of-the-sector scorecard that will spur a public conversation about government contracting and contract management reform and overall improvements needed in the business environment for human services in New York City and New York State. The survey covers the current year contracting cycle. Click here to begin survey.

Nonprofit leaders: The Bridgespan Group invites you to participate in a new research project by sharing your experiences in a brief (10-15 minute) survey. Your input will be critical to the project's success.
The results will help Bridgespan identify common nonprofit business models and the core capabilities each requires to succeed. Bridgespan's work to date has shown that the social sector is often painted with a broad brush, masking important differences in what it takes to achieve sustained social impact and financial sustainability. A clearer understanding of the variation in business models and what accounts for success within each can help you clarify what is core to your strategy, identify peers to learn from, and make a compelling case to funders.  We hope that you can participate and help fully represent the needs, voice, and diversity of the nonprofit sector.

DACA Program At Risk - What It Means for Nonprofits
President Trump announced today that he is rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution to keep people with DACA status in the US. The DACA program protects approximately 800,000 immigrants from deportation - many who were brought to the country as small children. People with DACA status have work permits and work in various sectors across the country - including the nonprofit sector.
As Make the Road New York said in their opinion piece in NY Nonprofit Media: "For New York, it would mean deep damage to our communities, the loss of legal protection for 42,000 DACA beneficiaries, and a negative annual economic impact of $2.3 billion, according to a recent report by the Center for American Progress . And we are more than numbers or pieces of paper. We are doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers and attorneys serving our communities." Governor Cuomo and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman issued a joint statement announcing that they would sue to protect DREAMers (those with DACA status) if President Trump ends the DACA program.
For updates on DACA-related policy, visit The Immigrant Legal Resource Center has also published a Know Your Rights resource in English, Spanish, and Chinese.
NPCC member New York Immigration Coalition will gather supporters in Foley Square at 5:30 p.m. "to remind this President that we will protect immigrant New York and that we are HERE TO STAY!" After rallying at the downtown square, the protesters plan to march to the Brooklyn Bridge, according to an event flyer.

What's Going On With DOL Overtime Rules?
On August 31, 2017, a federal judge ruled in State of Nevada v. U.S. Department of Labor that the US Department of Labor's Final Rule on overtime is invalid because the department exceeded its authority in setting a high salary-level test that denied exempt status to executive, administrative, and professional employees without regard to their job duties. The judge interpreted the Fair Labor Standards Act as granting the DOL the authority to define and delimit the white-collar exemptions based primarily on the duties they perform. Because the Overtime Final Rule would have revoked the exempt status of four million workers based solely on the increase in the salary level and without regard to the work they perform, the judge invalidated the rule.  The ruling was expected and means that new rules will likely be created.

The DOL has published a  Request for Information  (RFI) in the Federal Register seeking comments from the public about how the white-collar exemption from overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act should be updated. The deadline for  submitting comments  is Monday, September 25. For more information, including background on current law and annotations that explain several of the questions presented in the RFI, see the National Council of Nonprofits' analysis:  Labor Department Reopens White-Collar Salary Exemption for Comments .

SBA Advocacy Office Wants to Hear from Nonprofits
The federal government is reconsidering many regulations and is seeking nonprofit input to try to match rules and regulations to the way charitable organizations operate and advance their missions. For example, the U.S. Labor Department has posted a Request for Information asking the public to submit comments on the rules governing which employees are and are not entitled to overtime pay. Many other federal departments and agencies are reviewing existing regulations with an eye toward removing two old regulations for every new one promulgated, as the President has ordered. What do nonprofits think? What regulations could be improved and which need to be protected from repeal? The Office of Advocacy at the U.S. Small Business Administration wants to know, and is hosting a conference call to hear from you. The call will be held on Tuesday, September 12 at 3:00 pm Eastern.

Government Shut Down?
According to our friends at the National Council of Nonprofits: the US House of Representatives plans to vote the first week of September on a bill that combines in one piece of legislation all  12 appropriations bills  - eight measures that have not yet come to a vote this year and four security-related bills that passed the House shortly before the beginning of the August recess. The Senate is likely to work on its own versions of the appropriations bill. Speaker Ryan confirmed this week that Congress is likely to pass a stopgap spending bill, known as a continuing resolution, to keep the government funded when the new fiscal year begins on October 1, and return to the tough decisions on FY 2018 funding later in the fall. However, Congress also needs to raise the federal debt ceiling to prevent the government defaulting on its debt. President Trump is threatening to shut down the government (presumably by vetoing the continuing resolution) if Congress doesn't provide funds to build a U.S .-Mexico wall. The Washington Post examines the range of possibilities  of whether the President can actually shut down the government. Politico also reports that there may be a strategy to combine "a three-month stopgap spending bill to keep the government open, the first installment of hurricane relief for Texas and Louisiana and an increase of the federal debt limit."
Tax Reform - What's Happening?
Now that Congressional action on the Affordable Care Act appears to have been set aside, Congress is turning its attention to tax reform legislation. Last month, NPCC shared some federal officials' ("the Big Six" group) statement of shared principles for comprehensive tax reform. Because the statement "set aside" the controversial "border adjustment tax" proposal that divided Republicans, it is more likely that Republicans will be able to find common ground on other tax reform proposals - and the statement explicitly encourages Democrats to join this process. Democrats (and two Independents) set out their priorities for working with Republicans on tax reform, including tax policies that do not lower taxes for the wealthy and do not increase taxes on the middle class and renouncing revenue generated from cuts to public benefits programs. While the Republican and Democratic priorities don't align, both statements open the door to bipartisan work on tax reform generally. However, some media outlets are reporting  that the President will support the proposals included in a proposal made by the "Big Six," anticipated as early as this week. The President made a speech on tax reform in the last week of August that had few specifics, but offered big picture ideas about decreasing corporate taxes and implied he was interested in eliminating some deductions.
IRS Advisory Committee Openings
The IRS is seeking applicants for vacancies on the  Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Government Entities (ACT) . The committee provides advice and public input on the various areas of tax administration served by the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division (TE/GE). Applications will be accepted through September 18, 2017.
OMB Extension (from our friends at Human Services Council)
In May, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a correcting amendment to allow nonprofits an additional fiscal year to implement changes to their procurement policies and procedures in accordance with OMB's Uniform Guidance .

The implementation date for organizations that opt to take advantage of the extension will start for fiscal years beginning on or after December 26, 2017. An entity with a fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, should be ready to implement the Uniform Guidance procurement standards by January 1, 2018. Read more here .
Let's Continue to Thrive to Build Better Communities FOR ALL 
NPCC's mission is to help New York nonprofits thrive to build better communities for all. We focus on the "for all" today as we think about events in Charlottesville that threaten our ideals of equality and equity. We believe that the charge of the nonprofit sector is to dismantle inequity. We believe that for nonprofits to thrive, we must center equity, diversity, and inclusiveness in our work - a core principle in our guiding Eight Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence. As the Nonprofit Quarterly editorial stated so clearly:

"Nonprofits should understand that this moment defines us on a deep level-a moment where civil society must declare with moral certainty that notions of racial superiority are antithetical to our common humanity and our future. As a sector, we have not taken the leadership on this that we should. In fact, our organizations often mirror the distortions of larger society. Not only must we publicly disavow white supremacy; we must offer a counter narrative, and model leadership that supports racial justice and economic justice-in society at large and in our organizations. We have no time to waste."

NPCC approaches all of our work through an anti-oppression lens. We understand oppression as a system that gives some people, groups, or communities power over others because of their identities and experiences, and which often reduces communities' access to resources, rights, personal freedoms, and safety. We aspire to identify, confront, and take action against all forms of oppression and work in solidarity with one another and our members to end it.  We at NPCC reject white supremacy, and the institutions that support, condone, and uphold it.

For now, we encourage you to let us know if there is work that you are doing that we can lift up through our media channels. As always we thank you for the important work you are doing for the sector, and for our communities.

The Field and NPCC Partner to Strengthen the Arts
NPCC and The Field have formed a partnership to fully engage, understand, and meet the needs of the arts communities and nonprofits. NPCC and The Field, both membership organizations, will bring their respective expertise to this professional development exchange and share and create programming for arts organizations and artists throughout New York City. The goal of this partnership is to provide arts organizations and artists with information about nonprofit management that helps them effectively run their businesses while producing their work. Together, NPCC and The Field will share and create events aimed at improving management practices of arts nonprofits.
In the first year, through this partnership, The Field and NPCC will host a series of events, including:
  • Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 6:00pm, 75 Maiden Lane, The Field's Open House and Information Session on Fiscal Sponsorship. (Register here)
  • Wednesday, October 25, 2017, The Field's Individual Giving Toolbox, hosted at The Field.
  • Wednesday, January 17, 2018, The Field's Toolbox on everything you wanted to know about applying for New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) grants, hosted at NPCC.
  • Thursday, April 5, 2018, The Field's Toolbox Self-Producing and Community Engagement, hosted at NPCC.
The Field and NPCC are excited about this partnership and how it will bring arts-focused nonprofit management resources and tools to arts organizations and artists. The Field has been a longtime provider of one-to-one services to individual artists in New York and beyond for more than 30 years. Working with NPCC is a prime opportunity for both organizations to help artists reach their fullest potential no matter where they are in their artistic and professional development. NPCC has been a longtime provider of nonprofit management best practices to New York City area nonprofits, and to deepen our work in the arts subsector. We will continue to update our respective memberships throughout the year about opportunities to benefit from this partnership and in the professional development exchange.
Meet the 2017 Nonprofit Excellence Awards Selection Committee
