Two things are already clear about 2014 for nonprofits: It will be the year of the woman—two national meetings in April will focus on female giving—and a year filled with politics. In addition to the midterm elections, the IRS is examining changes in lobbying rules and seeking public comments through February 27.
Here are some of the highlights of meetings and other events that affect nonprofits. To see updates to this list and to submit your events and conferences, visit philanthropy.com/events.
