Read the second draft of the principles on self-regulation.
We are pleased to report that the Panel has posted on its website the second draft of the principles for effective practices developed by its Advisory Committee on Self-Regulation. It is now seeking comments on the second draft from a broad audience.
Nearly a year ago, the Panel on the Nonprofit Sector appointed a special Advisory Committee on Self-Regulation to assist in developing recommendations for strengthening the self-regulation of charitable organizations. Last month the Panel called for comments on the initial draft of the principles, which the Advisory Committee created after examining more than 50 self-regulation and accreditation systems that monitor different types of charitable organizations. Members of the nonprofit community responded with more than 125 comments, and the committee and the Panel utilized them extensively as they revised the principles.
Because of the value of the those earlier suggestions, the committee now invites you and others in our community to comment on the second draft of the principles, which are posted on the Panel’s website. The committee will be considering all comments submitted by March 30, 2007, before making its final recommendations to the Panel. The Panel will consider the committee’s proposals and issue its report on strengthening self-regulation in the nonprofit community in late Spring 2007.
We look forward to hearing from the many voices in the field commited to improving practice in the nonprofit community.
