Best Practices for Board Service: Historic House Museums - Part I
April 10, 2019 1:30 - 3:00 pm CT
Clear up the confusion about who does what in historic house museum organizations by participating in this two-part webinar. During the first of two webinars on this topic, we will discuss the legal responsibilities of all nonprofit board members according to state nonprofit law and how these duties apply to nonprofit historic house museum boards. We will discuss the three board responsibilities, called the Duty of Care, Loyalty, and Obedience to the Law, and how your historic site can demonstrate your understanding of these duties and the organizational policies and practices you can implement to assure that you exceed these minimum requirements
