You will also find information on a tax seminar for non-profits being held Feb 27 in Tustin.

Some topics might be beyond our small societies, but we all need to keep in compliance with Federal and State law.  I urge you to send a representative to these conferences if you live in close enough proximity and perhaps they would be willing to report on them for the CSGA Newsletter and Blog.
