ANSI Legal Issues Forum Overview

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Legal Issues Forum is held on an annual basis as part of World Standards Week. The 2015 forum focused on the top legal traps your non-profit organization needs to avoid. Topics covered managing tax issues, including form 990s and UBIT; managing proper governance practices, including conflicts of interest; employment compensation issues; and, managing, disciplining, and terminating volunteers, among other issues. Our expert panelists discussed potential traps to watch out for, as well as best practices and case studies covering significant, real-life legal issues related to standards and conformance activities.


ANSI members and interested stakeholders including those from government, industry, business, consumer groups, and academia were encouraged to attend and share their perspectives, insights, and expertise.
