In this course, practitioners from a number of sectors will discuss the different affiliation techniques that they use, describe the creation, operation and dissolution of for-profit subsidiaries, and discuss the benefits and pitfalls of corporate membership relationships among nonprofit organizations; including the fiduciary and liability implications of such relationships.

Multi-entity nonprofit organizations exist for a variety reasons.  Nonprofits may affiliate with other nonprofits through corporate or contractual relationships for specific projects or endeavors.  Nonprofit organizations may also choose to affiliate rather than merge, to avoid organizational upheaval, or for cultural, tax, accounting, financing, or liability reasons. For similar cultural, tax, accounting, financing or liability reasons, nonprofits may choose to create wholly owned subsidiaries or other affiliate entities to embark on new operations or lines of business, rather than conducting these through their central operating entities.

Our panel of experienced practitioners will offer considerations and techniques for affiliating, and for unwinding affiliations, in the university, healthcare, cultural and real estate sectors. For-Profit Subsidiaries will be addressed, as well as corporate member relationships.
