Nebraska AG reaches settlement with United States Amateur Confederating of Rolling Skating
Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson announced a settlement with United States Amateur Confederating of Rolling Skating (USARS), a Nebraska nonprofit corporation on Tuesday.
The settlement results from a complaint that alleged that USARS was reimbursing employees for expenses unrelated to the charitable mission, and which led to an investigation into USARS’s oversight of its charitable assets, policies, and procedures.
According to a press release from Attorney General's Office, the settlement requires USARS to, among other things, report any internal complaints to the Attorney General’s Office; perform annually a neutral, third-party audit to be posted on the USARS website; eliminate all incentive-based compensation; and requires USARS board members to attend nonprofit training sessions.
This settlement comes as a result of cooperation of current USARS board members, and allows the organization to move forward utilizing best practices for nonprofit organizations.
