Board Business Matters for the 21st Century

If motivation and meetings are the fuel propelling nonprofit organizations forward, then solid business practices comprise the foundation upon which they operate. Established and emerging boards benefit from staying current on trends and new practices in board operations and governance matters.

The Philanthropy Institute welcomes Carolyn Siegfried, Executive Director of the Pedrozzi Foundation, in conversation with Jane Scaccetti, Of Counsel at Armanino LLP to discuss:

      • Behind the scene: the business of board operations
      • Board president and executive director perspectives and responsibilities
      • Board governance: corporate bylaws, articles of incorporation, meeting minutes
      • Fiscal responsibility: budgets and grant funding management
      • Compliance and reporting: stakeholders, grant funders and federal and state taxation matters
