Convention of States Legal Training

About This Course

The legal training course provides volunteers a basic introduction to nonprofit law and how it applies to the Convention of States Project. Volunteers will learn about the structure of the COS Project and the differences between 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations, including the types of activity that each organization can engage in. This training is critical for COS volunteers to understand what they can and cannot do while representing the Convention of States Project.

All State Leaders and District Captains are required to complete this course as part of their volunteer training.
