Description

Board members who voluntarily give of their time to advance their profession automatically assume individual legal obligations and personal risk by serving in their positions. This concise booklet will quickly orient them to these legal duties as board members and summarize the major areas of risk including
  • antitrust
  • defamation and infringement
  • tax-exemption requirements
  • lobbying and political activity

Rounding out this resource is a section on avoiding or minimizing risks. As an association, one thing you can do is educate your board members by giving them each a copy of this booklet.
