Attorneys on Non-Profit Boards
Women in Law Section Meeting
Topic: Caution! Attorneys on Non-Profit Boards
Attorneys frequently serve as members of boards of nonprofit organizations, even when the law of tax-exempt organizations does not typically arise in their practice of law. This program will provide valuable information for attorneys who are serving, or considering whether to serve on a board of a nonprofit, and also will constitute a basic primer in the field. Topics covered will include the legal framework of Ohio nonprofits, standards of conduct and best practices, potential liabilities and protections for board members and special considerations (including ethical issues) confronting attorneys who act as board members (and therefore fiduciaries) of charitable entities.
