Why You Should Think Twice About Board Service

Event Description

Deadline to Register: October 3, 2016 

Attorneys are frequently approached by nonprofit organizations looking for board members. Not only because they think all attorneys are well off but because free legal advice is sure to follow. Should you be flattered or frightened? This session focuses on understanding the risk of wearing two hats (attorney and board member), how to avoid running afoul of professional responsibility rules and questions to ask before you get involved.

Registration and lunch begin at 11:45 a.m.  The program begins at Noon.
