Not-for-profit organizations exist to benefit the public as opposed to the private interests of board members or other individuals. To achieve that, it is imperative to earn the public's trust through ethical leadership and responsible practices. The stakeholder confidence you earn through accountable and transparent practices is one of your most critical assets. This session will focus on how board members of not-for-profit organizations can ensure they are accountable for their actions, transparent in their financial dealings, and responsive when concerns arise.
