The first questions nonprofit founders often ask are, “Why do I need a board of directors? What does a board do?” In fact, the nonprofit board of directors is a critical element in the success of a new—or any—nonprofit organization.
The next session of the Legal Center for Nonprofits’ Nonprofit Start-up Series, on Tuesday, October 24 at 6:00 pm, will provide an overview of what nonprofit boards of directors do, the key role the board plays in the nonprofit organization as it oversees the nonprofit’s programs and activities, and the board’s fiduciary duties to the nonprofit. We will also consider what happens if boards fail to carry out these duties and responsibilities.
This is the third session in the Nonprofit Start-up Series. Future sessions will consider tax-exempt status—what it means and how to get it.
