About the Webinar:

Conflicts of interest are almost inevitable with any nonprofit endeavor. People who come together with the same passion for charter schooling may end up having other ties that bind them. A policy and culture anchored in disclosure allows beneficial interests to come together in the light of day while keeping inappropriate arrangements at bay. We will briefly review a board’s duties and code of conduct as a steward – or “fiduciary” – of taxpayer dollars. Then we will explore, complete with real-life scenarios, the elements of a robust conflict of interest disclosure process that guards against excess personal gain situations while preserving a board’s independence.
