VO Workshop: Duties and Liabilities of Directors and Officers of Charities and NFPs

October 16, 2019, 9:15 - 11:45 AM

Legal_Check-up-640px.jpgBeing a member of a board or officer of a charity or not-for-profit (NFP) is a big responsibility. Along with the volunteer commitment comes a number of duties, responsibilities and liabilities to the organization and to yourself as a director or officer. This session will help you to understand what those duties and liabilities are so that you can comply with those obligations and reduce exposure to liability.  This two-part session will include the following topics:

  • Essential Privacy Issues for Charities and Not-for-Profits by Esther Shainblum, and
  • Duties and Liabilities of Directors and Officers by Terrance S. Carter
