Schaffer Law Firm

CEO vs. the Board -- What’s the difference, and why we need both

Lately I’ve received lots of Anonymous Questions about the role of a board of directors in relationship with the Executive Director. There are many legal grey areas associated with this relationship, so for Season 3 Episode 6, I asked my favorite nonprofit attorney Rachel Schaffer Lawson of Schaffer Law Firm to come back to the show and answer all the questions you have submitted. Please keep in mind her answers to my questions do not constitute legal advice for your specific nonprofit organization or situation! If you have further questions, please reach out to Rachel directly--she does not charge for phone calls or emails.

Legal Mistakes You Accidentally make

In this episode of the Nonprofit Jenni Show podcast, I talked about some inadvertent legal mistakes I've seen pop up in the nonprofit world lately. I asked Rachel Schaffer Lawson of Schaffer Law Firm to come back on the show and answer some questions about employee vs. contractor issues, legal requirements for fundraising, and programs which may not belong in your nonprofit organization.
