Nonprofit Quick Tip: Registration in New York and New Jersey

August 28, 2023 Podcast
EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. I'm Cynthia Rowland, and this is the fifth in a series of quick tip episodes focusing on the details of state registration of nonprofit corporations. With the help of Joe Hilliard, today, we jump across the country to look at the basic state filing requirements for nonprofit corporations operating in New York and New Jersey.

In episode 38, we talked about filing in Delaware and California, which are the most frequently used by our clients, most of whom have a connection with California. Episode 40 focused on Nevada and Arizona, episode 43 looked at Washington State and Oregon, and episode 47 addressed Alaska and Hawaii. We'll work our way through the rest of the states in future episodes.
