Legal for Good’s Proposed Changes Adopted by Minnesota State Legislature

St. Louis Park, Minnesota, May 16th, 2017: Legal for Good PLLC is pleased to announce that its proposed changes pertaining to nonprofits have been adopted by the Minnesota legislature and will take effect this year. Jenn Urban, the founder of Legal for Good PLLC, a law firm that specializes in nonprofit law, not only advocates for her clients, but she also works hard to make Minnesota a better state for all nonprofits.

This past year, Jenn worked on a committee that drafted legislation pertaining to nonprofits to help Minnesota laws work for charities instead of against them. The state legislature recently adopted those proposed changes—Minnesota Governor Dayton signed the bill into law on April 21, 2017, amending the Minnesota Nonprofit Corporations Act, Chapter 317A, effective August 1, 2017.

Notable changes to Chapter 317A include: a.) updating the term “written action” to include electronic communication; b.) clarifying the role of nonprofit incorporators; c.) establishing “special litigation committees” and clarifying the board’s role when it comes to committees; d.) permitting foreign nonprofits to convert into Minnesota nonprofits; and e.) permitting entities to convert into nonprofit corporations (in limited circumstances).

Urban was honored to be a part of the effort, and is even more thrilled the revisions were enacted this legislative session. She stated, “The changes to Chapter 317A bring much-needed clarity to Minnesota’s nonprofit laws, and transport Minnesota into the 21st century.”
