The Center for Non-Profits and the National Council of Nonprofits presented a webinar to provide the most recent information about these changes and how your organization can start taking advantage of them. 

The session featured National Council of Nonprofits' Policy Specialist Beth Bowsky and Vice President for Public Policy David L. Thompson, two of the nation's top experts and leading non-profit advocacy voices on the issue.

Topics discussed:

  • What the major changes in the OMB Uniform Guidance are that will affect your organization;
  • What your organization needs to do to take advantage of and comply with the new rules;
  • What you can do to ensure state and local governments implement the changes as OMB intended.

Center members, order this special insider's look at what the new OMB Uniform Guidance will mean for your organization's government contracting work, and how we can work together to build on the promise of the new guidance.
