The Role of An Attorney on a Non-Profit Board

Stroock Special Counsel David Lowden will be a panelist at the New York City Bar CLE on The Role of An Attorney on a Non-Profit Board on March 4, 2011.

This program will provide valuable information for attorneys who are serving, or considering whether to serve on a board of a nonprofit, and also will constitute a basic primer in the field. Topics covered will include the legal framework of New York nonprofits, standards of conduct and best practices, potential liabilities and protections for board members, recent legislative developments relating to endowment funds, and special considerations (including ethical issues) confronting attorneys who act as board members (and therefore fiduciaries) of charitable entities.
