More from the conference site:

This year’s NASCO Conference will be held in Washington D.C. at the Westin Washington Center and will run from October 17 – 19. Monday’s session is open to the public and provides an opportunity for representatives of the nonprofit sector to meet and participate in discussions with state regulators and vice versa. Tuesday and Wednesday are regulator only days and provide significant opportunity for state charity regulators to discuss the latest topics and learn from each other.

The theme for this year’s conference is “The Evolving World of State Charities Regulation.” The agenda for both the public day and the regulator only days will offer a mix of presentations by state regulators and speakers from the non-profit sector addressing this theme, including presentations on the increased development of non-traditional models of philanthropy and the development of new tools for the nonprofit sector.

The session on Monday will also include a discussion of the implications of the joint multistate action brought by the Federal Trade Commission and all fifty states against Cancer Fund of American and related entities. The session on Monday will end with a presentation from several of the members of the National Association of Attorneys General newly established Charities Committee.

We will conclude Tuesday’s regulator-only session with a networking social hour and dinner, followed by the NASCO business meeting. Finally, the regulator only portion of the conference will wrap up on Wednesday morning with a debriefing of the conference and suggestions for next year’s conference, and a discussion of NASCO activities, including potential multistate actions.
