Managing Board Conflicts of Interest

Daniel Kurtz and Sara Paul, authors of " Managing Conflicts of Interest: The Board's Guide to Unbiased Decision Making," say the following: "Making unbiased, independent decisions on behalf of the organization can be difficult when a family member or a business relationship may be affected by or benefit from those decisions. The more connected a board member is, the more likely it is that such intertwining circumstances will arise, creating potential and sometimes problematic conflicts of interest."

This is particularly true for parent trustees of our boards. While financial conflicts of interest are often easy to identify and manage, personal conflicts of interest require great care to manage to insure good decision making by the board.

Register today for ISCA's upcoming webinar with Daniel Kurtz and Shveta Kakar of Pryor Cashman, LLC, on managing board conflicts of interest especially with parent trustees. The webinar is on Tuesday, March 3rd at 1:00 pm ET.
