board of directors

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.
