About this Program

If the board members on Bernard Madoff's charities were reviewing whether the origanizations' funds were being invested prudently, then many of those organizations would not have suffered such significant losses.  In this course, attorney Gene Takagi explains how serving on the board of a nonprofit comes with more than just a rewarding experience, but also many legal responsibilities. Takagi examines the legal duties of a nonprofit board member, including the duty of care, duty of loyalty, and duty of obedience.  He also provides advice on the best way to meet these duties and reduce areas of potential liability, and presents the different regulations that apply to private foundations and public charities.  This course will teach you everything you need to know to protect either yourself or your client from liability while serving on any charity board.

Agenda:
I. The Board’s Powers and Responsibilities
II. Duties of a Nonprofit Director
III. Meeting the Duties
IV. Basic Legal Requirements
V. Private Foundation v. Public Charity
VI. Potential Liabilities
VII. Form 990: Governance Policies
