Written in plain English, Association Law Handbook is the definitive practical legal guide for volunteer leaders and staffs of membership and other nonprofit organizations. Designed for ease of use, it enables you to quickly understand and navigate virtually every aspect of law affecting membership organizations—including current corporate, political, antitrust, and tax law—and to avoid potentially costly mistakes.

Revised to reflect the latest developments in nonprofit law, this new edition—now containing 100 chapters—includes updated case citations and all-new chapters on critical topics:

  • the board-management relationship
  • harassment
  • nonprofit organization copyrights
  • nonprofit joint ventures
  • employee versus independent contractor distinctions
  • personal data protection

Also included are 34 customizable legal forms and documents—the ones associations need most—loaded on a USB drive.
