Sport in Society at Northeastern University will continue its free seminar series for nonprofit management for sport-based youth development organizations at noon on Dec. 12 at the Curry Student Center, Room 440.

The topic of the day will be Understanding Human Resources Management and Employment Law in Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations. The seminar will be led by Rick Arrowood, J.D., a graduate professor in Northeastern’s Master of Science in Nonprofit Management and Master of Science in Leadership.

The seminar is designed specifically for the sport-based youth development community. 
During this one-hour interactive lecture and discussion, participants will have the opportunity to learn, ask questions, and get answers in real time through a small classroom setting.  

Topics will include:

• Legal environment of human resources management
• Recruiting, managing, and retaining volunteers
• Onboarding of new employees and volunteers
• Performance management
• Compensation and benefits
The last seminar, which focused on “How Nonprofits Organize and Operate,” was a huge success.  Participants remarked that Dr. Arrowood provided ample practical information about the legal requirements to become a 501(c)3 and how to maintain (or how to endanger) tax exempt status, presented in an engaging, dynamic manner.

Food will be served.  There is no fee for the event, but registration is required.  For more details or to register, click https://humanresourcesmanagement.eventbrite.com
