Under the City of Philadelphia's new lobbying ordinance, effective January 3, 2012, those that lobby the City and its agencies must register with the Philadelphia Board of Ethics and file periodic reports disclosing their activities. Many nonprofit organizations that interact with the City are subject to the new regulations and could potentially face penalties for noncompliance.

But what exactly constitutes lobbying, and what should your organization be doing to comply? This briefing will explain what is required (and prohibited) in Philadelphia by the City's new ordinance and the accompanying regulation, and how it stacks up against state, federal, and IRS requirements.
