Nonprofits & Elections: A Day of Training
June 19, 2012 – Portland
Our democracy requires an informed and engaged public, and who better to educate and motivate our citizens than Maine’s nonprofits close to the issues and our communities? 501(c)(3) nonprofits are prohibited from supporting or opposing candidates for public office, but there are plenty of election-related activities that are legal, appropriate and essential for nonprofits. Join us for a full day of training on what nonprofits can, can’t, and should do during an election season. Be inspired to integrate voter engagement into your yearly activities.
9:00 am – Noon
Join staff from MANP and the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices for this half-day training on what types of election season activities are legal and appropriate and how to report them.
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Join Nonprofit Vote, the leading national source of nonpartisan resources for nonprofits, for this half-day introduction to nonpartisan voter engagement for nonprofits.
