Join us for an update on the latest developments regarding China’s foreign nongovernmental organizations law and its impact on associations operating as foreign NGOs in China since the law took effect over a year ago.

This session addresses common questions and challenges faced by both professional societies and trade associations and shares case studies that show how organizations are responding to the law. Attendees will receive guidance on what activities may raise concerns or require transition procedures and will gain an understanding of the legal and political context of the law, as well as a perspective on China’s ongoing domestic association reform.

David Livdahl, a partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, and Steven Basart, vice president, China, for Kellen—both long-term residents of China with in-depth experience consulting and advising associations there—will join live via video-stream from Beijing.

This event is aimed at senior association executives (CEO, VP, general counsel, or director) of global associations with activities in mainland China or with plans to develop such activities.

Continental breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. The program will begin at 9:00 a.m.
