Time To Board: Fundamentals of Board Service for Lawyers

Stay tuned for more information!

About the Course:

Whether you're new to non-profit board service or you're due for a refresher course, meet our expert speakers who will guide you through the fundamentals of board service.

Charities strengthen our communities in countless ways and the volunteers associated with these groups are often passionate about the cause. Sometimes there is a lot less enthusiasm for paying attention to board governance, legal fiduciary obligations and reporting requirements. But charities ignore these important concepts at their own peril. If groups fail to take care of business properly, the entire organization can be jeopardized. This training will include a review of the basic requirements all charitable organizations have and provide easy-to-follow tips for board members who try to do their jobs responsibly in order to protect the organization and the beneficiaries of the group's efforts.

Many lawyers contribute their time and energies to important community organizations. But sticky situations can arise that touch on the professional responsibility and ethical considerations lawyers must deal with every day. This portion of the training will touch on some pitfalls that can arise, as well as the tremendous skill sets that lawyers possess that can be especially helpful to the charitable community. We will take a brief look at the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct and discuss some situations that have arisen during the Attorney General’s investigations.
We'll include segments on tax implications and D&O insurance, to round out the afternoon.
