NGO & Not-for-Profit Organizations Committee

From the Leadership Team

Welcome to the NGO and Not-for-Profit Organizations Committee. This year's leadership team for 2015-2016 looks forward to providing valuable substantive information and networking opportunities. Our goal is to bring you expanded coverage of recent activities, informative news from around the world, featured articles, announcements about members, and important dates to put on your calendar.

This year, we will be engaging in a wide range of activities, including our conference calls, in-person programs in Washington, D.C. and New York, networking opportunities, publications, and collaborative efforts with other ABA entities. We look forward to continuing to participate in the Section's partnership with the World Bank, collaboration with other committees, and outreach to other organizations.

Are you interested in shaping the topics, activities, and direction of the committee? We encourage all members to join our monthly planning calls, which are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month. Look for the conference call announcement on the committee listserv.
