Get On Board: Practical Tips for Lawyers Sitting on Not-For-Profit Boards


  • Ann Levangie, Patterson Law and Scott Campbell, Stewart McKelvey 

This session will cover the nuts and bolts of sitting on the board of a not-for-profit organization. You’ll learn about how to manage risk, avoid conflicts, and fulfill your duties as a director, while getting involved in the community. There will be tips on chairing meetings, taking minutes, drafting board policies and procedures, and advancing the cause of your not-for-profit organization.

As always, law students are welcome to attend, as are lawyers of all stages of practice.
