Wondering if a traditional board is the best fit for your nonprofit? Nonprofit corporate governance is dominated by boards of directors, but a traditional board might not be the best structure or fit for every nonprofit. Recent developments in nonprofit corporate law (and some older, though little-used provisions) permit a great variety of alternative governance structures -- designated bodies, authorized third parties, committees, and members -- that can supplement or replace board governance. Use of these alternative structures can meet some nonprofits' special governance needs, but implementing alternative structures requires careful consideration, planning, and drafting. Please join William Klimon of Caplin & Drysdale's Exempt Organizations Group as he guides you through an interactive discussion on "Beyond the Board: Alternatives in Nonprofit Governance."

This program will be of interest to nonprofit leadership, including board members, executive directors, and other managers and advisors. This event is by invitation only.

Join us to learn more about:

  • the alternative governance structures permitted by many states' laws;
  • the circumstances and issues that may make an alternative governance structure the best choice for your organization; and
  • the legal technicalities involved in implementing alternative governance structures.
