Being a member of a nonprofit board of directors carries certain legal and ethical responsibilities. Board members must guarantee accountability and are responsible for the oversight of government filings, stewardship of donations and the vigor of the programs provided to clients. In this workshop, board members will review their legal duties and explore real life ethical dilemmas faced by nonprofit boards.

You will learn:

  • participants will become familiar with the required government filings that nonprofits must comply with
  • participants will understand the need for and compliance of Conflict of Interest policies
  • participants will evaluate ethical dilemmas faced by nonprofit boards of directors and develop solutions for those scenarios.
