OLYMPIA...The Secretary of State's Corporations and Charities Division is sponsoring a charity and nonprofit educational symposium in Bremerton on Monday, April 7.

The event will be held at Kitsap Conference Center (100 Washington Ave.) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with lunch provided.

Teresa Glidden, education coordinator for the Corporations and Charities Division, said the event will provide valuable information about the legal and fiduciary duties of a nonprofit board, maintaining nonprofit status, financial controls, registration and renewal requirements for charities, Washington State tax requirements, and special occasion licensing from the Washington State Gambling Commission.

"Our symposiums and workshops are popular across the state," Glidden said. "We've seen an overwhelmingly positive response for these events. They fill up fast, so I encourage people to not delay in registering for it."

There is a $10 per-person lunch charge to help defray the costs of the facility and catering. Registrants can pay online when they register by credit or debit card. Registration is limited and available online at www.sos.wa.gov/charities/training.

For more information about the event, contact Glidden at (360) 725-0373 or teresa.glidden@sos.wa.gov.
