ISCA Webinar: What Every Board Should Know About Bylaws

January 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST

A private school’s bylaws are a foundational governance document and should be routinely and systematically updated for compliance with applicable laws and best practices.  Bylaws will ideally include provisions on topics such as the powers held by the Board of Trustees; how trustees and officers are selected for their roles and removed therefrom; how Board meetings are called and conducted; steps required for the Board to act on matters brought before it; committee mandates; the Head of School’s role on the Board; how trustees can protect themselves from potential liability in connection with their service; and lessons learned from the COVID-19 climate.

Sara Goldsmith Schwartz, Founder and President of the law firm Schwartz Hannum PC, will facilitate a lively, interactive webinar about how to update a private school’s bylaws, including issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how bylaws intersect with the policies required by IRS Form 990.
