CPBO to Co-Host Clinic in a Box® Program – Nonprofit Employment Policies at the 2016 ACC Annual Meeting

ACC-AM-16On Monday, October 17, CPBO will join the San Francisco Bay ACC Chapter and DLA Piper*† to co-host a Clinic in a Box® program. CPBO will use its new Clinic in a Box® Program – Select Topic model, which has a similar format and structure to the traditional model but focuses on a specific topic rather than a broad legal audit of attending client organizations. The clinic will focus on wage and hour policy (including the upcoming December 2016 Department of Labor Regulatory Changes) and anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policy (with a particular focus on LGBT issues in the workplace).

The clinic will begin with a one and a half hour training session led by attorneys from DLA Piper. Volunteers will then meet in teams to assist the clients in drafting or revising their policies so that they may be implemented immediately. The clinic will run from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and provides a great opportunity to aid organizations that may otherwise be unable to afford such assistance. For more information, see Clinic in a Box® Program – Select Topic Volunteer FAQs.

Registration is required to volunteer. If you are attending the 2016 ACC Annual Meeting and would like to attend the clinic, please indicate your interest using the meeting registration portal. If you are interested in volunteering but are not attending the meeting, please contact CPBO Project Assistant Virginia Lyon for registration details.

To find out more about the Clinic in a Box® program, other CPBO events at the 2016 ACC Annual Meeting, or how to schedule a time to meet with CPBO while at the Annual Meeting, please contact CPBO. We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
