In 2012 PilchConnect will again provide regular seminars on legal issues that affect not-for-profit community organisations. These seminars are provided with the generous pro bono support of PILCH member law firms and guest presenters - for more details see our partners and supporters. 

PilchConnect's seminar series on common legal issues for not-for-profit organisations are:

  • aimed at small to medium not-for-profit community organisations
  • held at different venues in Melbourne's CBD area
  • presented by our member law firms and/or PilchConnect lawyers, and
  • are sometimes limited to 2 people per organisation per seminar (due to seat availability).
