What are the essential considerations when creating a board of directors as a new nonprofit organization? In this workshop, energetic Board Coach Michael Davidson will provide valuable insight on the dynamics of a founding board, assessing board members’ qualifications, and defining board responsibilities.

The session will also examine issues of legal compliance and good governance. Our expert attorneys will instruct participants on:

  • implementing policies to meet local, state, and federal regulations, including the new federal tax bill;
  • understanding board responsibilities and best practices; and
