HAPA Schedule of Seminars: 2015 – 2016

13th Annual Nonprofit Organizations One-Day Seminar

Friday, September 30, 2016

The 13th Annual Nonprofit Organizations One-Day Seminar presented by Chaminade University will take place on Friday, September 30, 2016 from 7:30 a.m. (registration) to 4:30 p.m. at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The seminar will provide useful information on current issues and changing requirements that affect every nonprofit and provide insights that will help organizations deal with the unique challenges facing them today.

Recent legislative and regulatory changes make this year’s seminar especially relevant.  This seminar is an excellent opportunity for nonprofits to get caught up on new rules, including new rules on Form 990 and Act 174 relating to charitable trusts and nonprofit organizations.  Experts will guide attendees through the tricky maze of tax-exempt compliance and review the categories and governing instruments for tax-exempt organizations.  They will also update attendees on new laws, which protect a nonprofit organization’s status, the audit accounting standard, use of tax-exempt entities, and strategies for maintaining a tax-exempt status.

Hugh Jones, Esq., Supervising Deputy Attorney General at Tax & Charities Division in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Trevor Asam, Partner at Cades Schutte
