The Charities Regulation and Oversight Project of the National State Attorneys General Program at Columbia Law School will host the 2013 Charities Regulation Policy Conference, “The Future of State Charities Regulation and Enforcement,” on February 6th (regulators-only afternoon session), 7th & 8th, 2013, at Columbia Law School in New York City. The 2013 conference will be the Charities Regulation and Oversight Project's third major policy conference devoted to issues regarding state regulation, oversight and enforcement of the charitable and nonprofit sector. Developed in partnership with the National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute, the conference will address the complex issues surrounding the current status, and the future trajectory, of state regulation of the charitable sector.
The 2013 conference will promote dialogue among regulators, leaders from the sector, practitioners and academics regarding challenges confronting state regulation of the sector and will promote development of proposals for improvement.
Featuring the participation of more than half a dozen current and former attorneys general, dozens of assistant attorneys general from around the country, federal regulators and top academics and practitioners, conference sessions will address a wide range of topics at the intersection of state regulation and the nonprofit sector, including emerging issues regarding the interlocking jurisdictional role of the states and the federal government; the continuing evolution of state attorneys general and other state regulators vis-a-vis the sector; political activity and advocacy in and by the sector; the regulatory and enforcement responsibilities of state attorneys general over new hybrid corporate forms and "social mission" organizations; state regulators and religious organizations; the dynamic evolution of states' regulation of nonprofit healthcare; how media and technology impact transparency of the states and the sector; and the changing landscape of state-based charitable solicitation. Papers solicited specifically for each session of this conference, as well as other substantive resources, will be posted publicly prior to the conference dates.
