Non-Profits and Associations Forum: It’s Campaign Season - What Can Non-Profits Do?


LIVE at the offices of Wiley Rein, LLP, 1776 K St. NW, Washington DC, OR BY WEBCAST from your desk.


Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC, the non-profit community has become increasingly engaged in campaign politics (note that the named party in the case, Citizens United, was a 501(c)(4) tax exempt organization).  

Popular belief seems to be that the yoke is now off non-profits and they are free to engage in campaign politics as much as they wish. This, of course, is not the case. Significant restrictions still apply as a matter of both campaign finance and tax law. What’s more, the rules can differ depending on whether your organization is a 501(c)(6) trade association, 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, or 501(c)(3) charity. Seasoned law firm and in-house practitioners will provide an explanation of these real-life issues and best practices to address them.


Presented by Caleb P. Burns, Partner - Election Law and Government Ethics Practice, Wiley Rein LLP; Thomas W. Antonucci, Partner - Election Law and Government Ethics/Corporate Practice, Wiley Rein LLP; and  Ryan P. Meyers, Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
