Fiscal Governance Compliance Check-up Clinic for Nonprofits
Lawyers Clearinghouse, Holland & Knight, and Exponentum™—a national network of business law pro bono providers—are uniting for a National Day of Service, with the common goal of serving nonprofits throughout the country. This legal clinic will help local nonprofit organizations assess and improve their governance systems and practices, with a focus on fiscal governance and financial management.
Issues covered will include:
- the role of nonprofit boards in financial oversight;
- audit committee governance;
- internal financial controls; and
- nonprofit investment policies.
ABOUT THE CLINIC:
The legal clinic will begin with a brief training on current fiscal governance issues. Next, each participating organization will meet with attorney volunteers assigned to you who will walk you through several questions regarding your current policies and procedures, in order to flag areas where you may need to make changes.
After this legal clinic, your organization may request additional assistance from Lawyers Clearinghouse to follow up on legal issues identified in the course of the attorney consultation.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
A board member, executive director, or senior manager of your organization. All local nonprofits are encouraged to register.
