Why You Should Think Twice About Board Service

Event Description

Deadline to Register: January 25, 2017

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.
