As a board member, it is not enough for you to just sit back and listen. Under state law, nonprofit board members have a duty of care that requires them to ask questions and be knowledgeable about the activities of the organization. You also have the ability to prevent costly and time-consuming problems down the road by raising potential issues now. Find out the questions you should ask in order to make sure the organization is legally compliant.

Executive Directors, invite your Board to join you in watching this informative webcast in which our speakers will:

  • Identify the most common legal pitfalls for nonprofits and the consequences of inaction;
  • Suggest questions you should ask in order to identify potential issues at your nonprofit; and
  • Inform as to how you might work together to resolve those issues.

Presenters: Rachel Spears, Executive Director, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta
Robyn Miller, Staff Attorney, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta
