CLE - 2017 Charitable Board Service Workshop

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Serving on a charitable board is an opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause or mission. You will also gain meaningful experience, broaden your career horizons, and use your skills to serve your community in an area of your interest.

Join the Boston Bar Association's Tax Exempt Organizations Section as they put on their annual program that will address what you need to know in order to be an effective member of a charitable board, as well as how to find the right board for you.

This program is particularly valuable to for those who have little or no significant experience serving on charitable boards but would like to. Lawyers and other professionals who are already serving on boards will also benefit and find this program informative.
