NSBA Seminar: Duties, Risk and Rewards of Serving on a Nonprofit Board

The Nebraska State Bar Association is offering a CLE seminar for attorneys created to address the duties, risks and rewards of serving on a nonprofit board. While attorneys are especially encouraged to attend, non-lawyer board members and nonprofit staff are also welcome.

Most lawyers are asked or encouraged to serve on a nonprofit board, possibly as legal counsel.  Such service can be personally and professionally rewarding.  However, if an individual doesn’t take the responsibilities seriously, the volunteer service can end up as a significant liability to reputation and resources.  This seminar is meant to assist attorneys in what to consider before agreeing to volunteer their service, along with advice on carrying out board responsibilities, including a session presented by Krystal Siebrandt, HBE Partner, on what board members should focus on to meet their fiduciary duties in relation to finance and accounting oversight.
