The New York City Bar Association will replay a video of a popular program titled The Role of an Attorney on a Non-Profit Board. It will be held on Thursday, August 18 at the New York City Bar Association at 42 West 44th Street in Manhattan.

The event begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at noon.

Attorneys frequently serve as members of boards of nonprofit organizations, even when the law of tax-exempt organizations does not typically arise in their practice of law. This program will provide valuable information for attorneys who are serving, or considering whether to serve, on a board of a nonprofit, and will also constitute a basic primer in the field. Topics covered will include the legal framework of New York nonprofits, standards of conduct and best practices, potential liabilities and protections for board members, recent legislative developments relating to endowment funds, and special considerations (including ethical issues) confronting attorneys who act as board members (and therefore fiduciaries) of charitable entities.

The presenters are David G. Samuels, Duval & Stachenfeld LLP; Karin Kunstler Goldman, assistant attorney general, section chief, NYS Department of Law, Charities Bureau; Eliot P. Green, Loeb & Loeb LLP; David W. Lowden, Strook & Strook & Lavan LLP; Jennifer I. Reynoso, Simpson Thatcher & Bartlett LLP; and Jean L. Tom, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP.
