Purcell1Have you pondered what legal issues may impact on your nonprofit organization?

Do my Directors and Officers understand their duty of loyalty and act accordingly outside the boardroom?

All of these questions and more were discussed in great detail by Mr. Phillip M. Purcell, JD.

Mr. Purcell's presentation highlighted many legal topics and current issues facing our industry, our boards and our donors. More specifically, discussion centered on Benefit Corporations, a new Indiana law, that differs from traditional corporations in purpose, accountability and transparency.
