    Product Description

    Congratulations, you’ve been asked to join a non-profit organization’s board of directors! Being involved with a non-profit organization can be very fulfilling, both personally and professionally. But what does being a board member actually entail? Do I need to fundraise? Do I need to do anything else other than fundraising? This new program provides a brief introduction to non-profit and charitable organizations, and addresses a lawyer’s duties and responsibilities as a board member of a non-profit organization. The panel discusses real situations and provides practical tips and guidance on how to successfully navigate your involvement on the board of a non-profit organization.
