Chamber Attends Workshop on the New York Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013
New York State’s laws governing charitable and other nonprofit organizations date from the 1960s. The New York State Attorney General’s Office has undertaken revisions in the form of the New York Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013. The changes have two main purposes: reducing burdens on nonprofits through the modernization of statutory requirements; and increasing public trust in the nonprofit sector by strengthening board governance and enhancing Attorney General enforcement powers. Most provisions will take effect effective July 1, 2014. As a 501c4 nonprofit corporation, the Portugal-US Chamber of Commerce will also need to adhere to new regulations. More information about the Revitalization Act of 2013 can be found here.

Chamber Participates in Events Promoting Doing Business in the U.S.
In November 2013, the Chamber participated a seminar on Doing Business in the U.S., hosted by CIEP and ACL at their headquarters in Lisbon. The event included several speakers and a panel discussion with companies currently doing business in Portugal, including Malo Clinic, Electricidade Industrial Portuguesa, and ACL Impex. See here the Chamber’s presentation: PUSCC.pdf.
That same week, the Chamber also participated in Portugal Exportador, a trade conference aimed at showcasing Portuguese firms and establishing networking and business opportunities for those companies wishing to engage in international trade. See here the Chamber’s presentation. The Chamber met with over 25 companies interested in coming to the United States at this event. Given the strong demand for services, the Chamber, CIEP, and ACL decided to organize the trade mission. We look forward to additional partner events organized with our colleagues at CIEP and ACL.
