Join us on Thursday, September 24th, for our third annual nonprofit governance program as we discuss topics such as:
- What are your state and federal legal obligations and proper roles when serving as a fiduciary of a charitable entity?
- How can a Board best support a CEO in most efficiently accomplishing that charity’s mission?
- How should a fiduciary assist with setting broad strategy, balancing risks and potential rewards, and choosing the organization’s best path forward?
- How can a fiduciary consider, and decide among, serving numerous and varied charitable needs?
- What successes, or challenges, have some CEOs experienced with Boards that did an especially good job evaluating potential risks and rewards?
This program will review the basic fiduciary duties applicable to nonprofit fiduciaries, such as Directors, Trustees, and Officers, and offer examples of how the traditional fiduciary duties of care, loyalty, and obedience can be adequately discharged – or may be inappropriately violated. After a summary of applicable Pennsylvania and federal law, a panel of nonprofit CEOs will discuss some of their best and worst experiences around balancing risks and working with a Board in setting organizational strategies and policies.
