Sharon Want Addresses Nonprofit Governance at 2021 Nonprofits & Associations Conference
Many of us are doing the work of re-thinking what it means to be a good person or good organization. For organizations, this means considering how being “good” relates to their legal obligations. A significant challenge in this work for nonprofit boards of directors and officers (and the lawyers who advise them) is how to ensure their approach to corporate governance supports their organization’s aspirational goals. There is no quick-and-easy solution. To help participants as they navigate these issues in their own organizations, the panelists will share what they have learned (and are still learning) from organizations they lead and serve.
