The Practising Law Institute is offering a free webcast of a live presentation from New York entitled Serving on a Nonprofit Board: Practical and Ethical Considerations for Attorneys on August 2, 2017 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Eastern.

Joining a nonprofit board can be one of the most personally and professionally rewarding experiences of an attorney’s career. Whether you’re an experienced attorney or just beginning to practice, serving on a nonprofit board can bring opportunities to deepen your skills, make valuable connections, and help a cause that is personally meaningful to you.  This program is designed for all attorneys  who currently serve, or are interested in serving, on a nonprofit  board.

Serving on a Nonprofit Board: Practical and Ethical Considerations for Attorneys will provide practical tips and review important ethical considerations for attorneys currently serving on nonprofit boards or thinking about joining a nonprofit board. (This program is an expanded version of the one hour briefing offered in July 2016, Serving on a Nonprofit Board: Practical and Ethical Considerations for Attorneys.)    

Topics Include
  • How to identify and join a nonprofit board that interests you
  • Do your due diligence: the questions to ask and documents to request before you join a nonprofit board
  • Bring maximum value to your role—how to best assist your fellow board members with business decisions, risk management, and legal decisions
  • What you must know about liability insurance, and indemnification
  • Important ethics issues and concerns for attorneys who serve on nonprofit boards
