“There’s no need to restrict nonprofits from benefiting from technology that can make it more convenient to bring members together and increase productivity,” said Bucco (R-25). “They should have the right to utilize the same advances that businesses have adopted.”

Nonprofits have been able to hold remote meetings during the pandemic. Under current law, the virtual alternative is only applicable during a state of emergency declared by the Governor.

Bucco’s bill, A-5549/S-4112, eliminates the emergency requirement.

“It will be easier for organizations to conduct meetings, discuss priorities and take action if they don’t have to convene in person,” Bucco noted. “It worked well during the pandemic, and this bill would extend that option at the discretion and authority of nonprofit boards.”
