On September 27, 2006 from noon to 2 pm, Jeff Tenenbaum will participate in a panel discussion entitled "Corporate Governance and Compliance for Non-Profits" presented by the WMACCA Non-Profits and Associations Forum.
This discussion is described as follows -
Sarbanes-Oxley may have been enacted to correct corporate governance problems in public companies, but it has had a much more far-reaching impact - including in the non-profit world. Two of its provisions - expanded protections for internal whistleblowers and new standards on document retention - have been incorporated into the U.S. Code. But even more significant is the extent to which non-profits have taken a look at SarbOx for guidance on how to change their corporate governance structure. What can and should non-profits take away from a look at Sarbanes-Oxley? And, if you decide to overhaul your organization's corporate governance structure, what are the best practices?
