We may be asked to serve on the board of our swim club, food bank, church, YMCA, hospital, day care center, or countless other nonprofits within our community. Our commitment to community service is a core value. With commitment and pride, we accept. However, in accepting, we assume duties as a board member many of which have little to do with raising money. The law imposes on each board member three fiduciary duties – the duty of obedience, the duty of care, and the duty of loyalty. This webinar will provide an overview of the law of nonprofit organizations and discuss how each of these duties come into play as we exercise our role of director or trustee. Nonprofit organizations are highly complex organizations bound by many laws. This free webinar - the first of three in this series - will give you a framework for being a good board member.
This program is open to attorneys and non-attorneys. Attorneys seeking CLE credit for their attendance are asked to certify during registration that they will render pro bono publico legal services (such as poverty law, civil rights law, public interest law, and volunteer activities designed to increase the availability of pro bono legal services) per Rule 6.1 of the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct in an amount at least commensurate with the MCLE credit earned.
The Pro Bono and Board Governance webinar series is co-sponsored by the Virginia State Bar, the Pro Bono Clearinghouse of the Greater Richmond Bar Foundation, and Sands Anderson PC.
(Approved for 1.5 hours of MCLE Credit)
