The Attorney General’s Charitable Advisory Council was created to provide feedback to the Charitable Law Section on proposed regulations, training needs and other trends within the sector. Each attorney general appoints the advisory council members whose terms expire with the term of the attorney general.
The council members receive no compensation or reimbursement of expenses. But their volunteer time and expertise has yielded valuable information that has helped guide the work of the Charitable Law Section. In addition to discussing new training strategies, the Council was also involved with the development of the online charitable registration system and explored the concept of mandatory audits for large charitable organizations. A final report from the Charitable Advisory Council that served under former Attorney General Mike DeWine can be found online.
