As Board Chair, how you manage conflicts of interest and assure open and honest deliberation affects all aspects of your school’s operations and is critical to making good decisions, avoiding legal problems and public scandals, and remaining focused on your school’s mission. You value your board members for their personal and professional knowledge, experience and engagement with your school and community; but these board members also face challenges in making unbiased, independent decisions on behalf of the school precisely because of their relationships to the school and the community. Almost every independent school has parent board members and they present a unique conflict-of-interest challenge during board decision making.
In this webinar, Daniel L. Kurtz and Shveta Kakar will help Board Chairs recognize potential problematic conflicts of interest and how to best manage them. They will provide expert guidance and best practices on creating a conflict of interest policy and the need for proper disclosure as well as procedures for responding to existing conflicts.
