With Anthony Garafola , Esq. & Ken Larsen 

4:00 - 5:00 p.m.: Attorney Anthony Garafola will clarify the differences between contractor and employee status for teaching artists and help demystify contracts.

5:00 - 6:00 p.m.: Nonprofit expert Ken Larsen will present "Fundraising Within the Law". Topics to be covered include the Nonprofit Integrity Act, California's path-breaking attempt to minimize abuses around all types of nonprofit fundraising as well as provisions of the law that apply to specific fundraising activities like raffles, bingo, casino nights, wine donations, and fireworks sales. Plus what you need to know about the Fair Political Practices Act if you fundraise for a ballot measure campaign.
