Authored By: D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center


← back to the nonprofit webinar archive

Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws are the two core documents that give your nonprofit independent legal status and set basic governance structures. In this webinar, Jason Qu, Managing Attorney for Nonprofit and Small Business Legal Assistance Programs at the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, will provide an overview of both documents and describe the legal process for filing and amending them.

Topics covered include:

  • A detailed breakdown of what should be included in your Articles;
  • How to file Articles with the D.C. government;
  • How to amend your Articles to change your organization's name, mission, membership structure, or other key attributes; and
  • How to adopt and amend your Bylaws.

This webinar is geared towards both startup organizations that are adopting Articles and Bylaws for the first time and established organizations that need help understanding and amending their basic governance documents.
