NY OKs Virtual Meetings for Nonprofits

New York Allows Nonprofits to Hold Virtual Membership Meetings

New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation on November 8th that permanently gives NY nonprofits  and religious corporations the ability to hold virtual-only membership meetings, and nonprofit corporations the ability to hold hybrid membership meetings that combine the virtual presence of some members with an in-person membership meeting. This change provides membership organizations, associations, professional societies, country clubs, churches, synagogues, mosques, charities, social welfare organizations, and other nonprofit and religious corporations incorporated in NY with flexibility for holding meeting beyond the unique public health and safety challenges associated with COVID-19.
