Hosted by the Young Lawyers Division as part of the Board Observer Program
This 2- hour CLE program will provide training on the basics of nonprofit board service, including charitable issues raised under state and federal laws for current board members.
In the first hour, experienced faculty will highlight:
- Fiduciary duties of nonprofit board members
- Tax laws applicable to nonprofits
- Particular Pennsylvania laws related to charitable and nonprofit organizations of which board members should be aware
This discussion will offer guidance to attorneys interested in serving on a nonprofit board and introduce them to the role of a Board of Directors and the laws governing nonprofits.
Finally, drawing from the discussion in the first hour, a panel of Executive Directors and Board members of charitable organizations, will share their real-life experiences and give guidance regarding the expectations of service to those who are interested in joining a nonprofit board.
Attendance by Board Observers is encouraged. You may register for CLE, which include lunch, or the lunch only option by clicking on the registration tab to your left.
