Join our panel of experienced alumni in a one-hour CLE about common issues that you should spot when serving on a board of directors for a nonprofit organization. The discussion will focus on the questions that “non-nonprofit practitioners” may face as directors, including basic federal and state tax issues. The panel will also discuss best practices to avoid or resolve potential conflicts unique to directors who are also practicing attorneys.
