Nebraska Activity #127295, 1.0 hour CLE
Nonprofit and tax exempt organizations of every size are complex organizations. Boards of directors need to recruit and retain talented management, supervise the investment of endowments in often volatile markets, engage profit-making corporations in joint ventures, and ensure the integrity of systems and policies in environment of increased governmental and public scrutiny. Effective governance of these organizations is essential to advancing the nonprofit’s mission. When governance fails, the organization itself and its directors are exposed to potential liability. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to major governance issues for nonprofits, including fiduciary duties of directors and officers, managing endowments, executive compensation issues, compliance and conflicts of interest.
