Wearing Two Hats: Lawyers as Board Directors

$30 for MBA members | $50 non-members 

Lawyers are often courted as nonprofit board directors because of our unique skills and insights, but board service can also pose professional risks to practicing attorneys. Heather L. Weigler, of Oregon Department of Justice’s Charitable Activities Section, and Rosalie Westenkow, of Nonprofit Law Northwest, LLC, will discuss how lawyers can fulfill their fiduciary duties as directors and officers while managing the risks of serving on a nonprofit board. The presentation will discuss effective board service, the value lawyers can add as board members, and ethical considerations lawyers should be prepared to navigate. The speakers will suggest strategies for meeting lawyers’ professional and board obligations to set the stage for successful board service by attorneys.
