Nonprofit board members come from a variety of backgrounds, experiences and professions. But despite their unique skill sets, they don’t always fully understand their critical functions… and the risks associated with them. Many nonprofit board members are unaware that failure to manage nonprofit compliance issues not only jeopardizes the nonprofit but also brings liability upon board members personally.

Please join Atty. Jennifer L. Urban as she takes a tactical look at the nonprofit organization and helps you understand critical functions and duties of the board of directors, explains how to avoid common landmines that could create personal liability for your organization’s leadership, and clarifies common governance and operational issues that could create problems. Gain the practical knowledge you need to avoid personal liability and properly manage risk.
