Eleanor Evans to Present Massachusetts Nonprofit Network Webinar “New Governance Options for Nonprofits During the COVID-19 Crisis”


Hemenway & Barnes counsel, Eleanor Evans, is pleased to present “New Governance Options for Nonprofits During the COVID-19 Crisis,” a webinar produced by the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network (MNN) on Thursday, April 23 from 10:00 – 11:00 AM.

A new emergency law makes it easier for Massachusetts nonprofits to function remotely during the COVID-19 crisis. Find out what actions boards may take under the new law, how to hold member meetings when it’s not possible to meet in person and what your organization needs to do to take advantage of these new governance options.  Join Eleanor Evans for a practical discussion and question and answer session on remote meetings, member proxies, appointing directors and officers, and more.

Eleanor Evans is a member of the Nonprofit Group at Hemenway & Barnes.   She has over 20 years’ experience representing nonprofit organizations in a diverse range of legal, governance and compliance matters.
