On December 11, Albert S. Dandridge, III, Chair of the Firm’s Securities Practice Group and a partner resident in Schnader’s Philadelphia office, was the featured speaker at the New Jersey Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ Annual Business Meeting and Luncheon in Edison, NJ. His presentation was titled “Nonprofit Corporate Governance in the Wake of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.” Corporate scandals led Congress to pass the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX). SOX’s purpose was to restore investor confidence in the public markets and to prevent corporate and accounting fraud. The presentation discussed the provisions and impact of SOX, particularly for nonprofit corporations.
