We are excited to announce our upcoming Professional Advisory Network event that will provide a legislative update on how recent changes will impact nonprofits in Arizona. Join us on May 2 at 4:30PM at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Center in Scottsdale to learn more about the new regulations and how they will affect local organization and the people who donate to them.

Our guest speaker, Laurie Liles, Chief Public Policy Officer, Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits & VP, Arizona Grantmakers Forum, will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest legislative changes and how they will affect nonprofits of all sizes. This is a unique opportunity to gain insights on the new regulations and network with other professional advisors in the estate planning community and CJP’s nonprofit partners.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session, where you will have the chance to ask questions and engage in a discussion with other professionals. We encourage you to come prepared with questions, ideas, and concerns so that we can create a collaborative space to learn from one another.

In addition to the keynote speaker and Q&A session, we will also provide ample time for networking. This is a great opportunity to connect with other professional advisors and nonprofit professionals, share your experiences, and build relationships that can help you navigate the changing landscape of nonprofit regulations.

This networking event costs $18 to attend, and hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served. Space is limited, so we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible.
