Members are much like shareholders of a for-profit corporation with various rights and obligations. This webinar will explain how to achieve most of the benefits of having members (i.e., revenue stream, engages stakeholders, input on major decisions, etc.), without having to manage the annual meetings, voting, record-keeping, production of records, and similar requirements.

Please join attorney Zachary Kester as he addresses how to manage “members” of nonprofit corporations. He will explain member recruitment and engagement strategies as well as multi-tiered membership structures and show you how to assess your own structures in order to determine where your member policies and practices are now as compared with where you want them to be.

    • Nonprofit history of “members”
    • Members as legal term versus simply “someone in our group”

  2. Benefits and drawbacks of members
    • Benefits: revenue stream, engages stakeholders, input on major decisions, etc.
    • Drawbacks: legal obligations, meetings, access to records, etc.
  3. Advanced Strategies
    • Membership structures; voting blocks
    • Voting by Proxy
    • Eliminating voting “members,” but keeping benefits
  4. Membership Policies and Procedures
    • Member recruitment
    • Member engagement
    • Checklist to assess internal member policies and procedures
    • Defining where you want to go
