Privacy Legislation for Association and Trade Groups 

Presenters: Mark Micali, Vice President, Government Affairs, The Nonprofit Alliance

Description: The onset of the coronavirus has largely "crowded out" discussion of other long-standing issues such as consumer privacy. That said, the June, 2018 enactment of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was a critically important event in terms of privacy policy. Not only is California the Nation's largest state with 40 million people, but the CCPA triggered a serious discussion on Capitol Hill as to the need for a national privacy standard. In effect, there has been a debate in Congress as to the need for one set of "Rules of the Road" on privacy for the entire Nation - Rather than facing the potential of a patchwork quilt of 50 individual state privacy statutes. 

And while the coronavirus has understandably dominated the legislative scene in both Congress and the states, last year 19 states were considering various types of privacy legislation. Accordingly, without a clear national privacy standard enacted by Congress, the potential of each state passing its own requirements would place fundraisers, membership directors, list brokers, coops and related data staff in the nightmarish position of trying to keep up with each state's privacy law. And this is not to mention the financial impact these varying state regulations would have on nonprofits and associations. Needless to say, this would represent the worst of all worlds.

Thus, what can we do to better understand what is happening? What are we really facing and what is the potential impact? We all believe data privacy is important, but how far does it go before it impedes the efforts of nonprofits and associations to serve their mission?

Learning Objectives:

  1. The potential for enactment of comprehensive federal privacy legislation.
  2. The current "state of play" in terms of possible privacy legislation in the states, and importantly, what is the latest on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). 
  3. How you can play a role to help ensure that future privacy legislation is effective and well crafted.
