Boards of directors play a critical role in the success of nonprofit organizations. Board members who understand and embrace basic principles of good governance help nonprofits gain credibility, provide access to community resources and serve as effective advocates. Nonprofits that lack strong board leadership often languish, or worse, find themselves the subject of media or governmental inquiry. Dianne Chipps Bailey offered tools to minimize your personal exposure to liability as a volunteer leader and leverage your skills as an attorney to realize your favorite nonprofit’s mission.
Bailey's session was part of the North Carolina Bar Association's daylong CLE program, "So You’ve Joined the Board—Now What? Nonprofit Governance for Lawyers." Attendees earned up to 6.0 hours of CLE credit.
