New York Attorney General Announces Plan to “Unlock the Full Potential” of Not-For-Profit Organizations

Posted in Governance

February 16, 2012 – Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has announced a new reform plan to reduce the regulatory burden on New York not-for-profit organizations while strengthening their governance and accountability.
The Attorney General’s comprehensive plan distinguishes itself from recent proposals to cap not-for-profit executive compensation, emphasizing that improper compensation is not representative of the New York not-for-profit sector as a whole. Instead, the Attorney General seeks a practical approach to assisting not-for-profits in reducing financial strains while maintaining governance best practices.
The plan takes a three prong approach to reform: (1) The Nonprofit Revitalization Act, (2) the “New York on BOARD” initiative, and (3) the “Directors U” initiative.
