WASHINGTON DC, USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE(TM) -- SEPTEMBER 14, 2006: Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) is pleased to announce its upcoming one-day management seminar, Executive Compensation Strategies for Nonprofit Hospitals, Health Systems and Health Plans.

The stakes have never been higher for nonprofit executives and board members, as the IRS scrutinizes executive compensation intensely and Congress is getting into the act.

The IRS has made executive compensation a top audit priority and sent out hundreds of letters demanding data on compensation practices in tax-exempt organizations.

If the IRS deems your compensation practices to be excessive, there could be a very heavy price to pay, since your executives and board members could be forced to (a) return the excess compensation they received, and (b) pay a stiff excise tax on top, none of which is covered by D&O liability insurance or is tax deductible.

No one is more qualified to help you meet these challenges than Doug Mancino of McDermott Will & Emery LLP, and Jim Rohan of Sullivan, Cotter and Associates, Inc., who together have more than 50 years of experience counseling tax-exempt health care organizations on issues exactly like this. Join Jim and Doug at one of three convenient locations for expert advice and practical strategies to avoid costly fines and taxes for excess benefit transactions.
