Legal Quick Hit: "Top Ten Things Every New Nonprofit General Counsel Should Know" for the Association of Corporate Counsel's Nonprofit Organizations Committee

This event has already occurred.

The honeymoon phase does not last long for a new general counsel of a nonprofit organization. On day one of your new job, you are going to start learning about all of those issues that could not be disclosed during the courting phase, whether out of concern for protecting the attorney-client privilege or out of concern for not scaring you away. Still, there should be a period of time when you first start for you to identify issues and make changes with support from management. Given that brief window of time, where should a new general counsel start? This session will discuss the top ten areas to review—focusing on the most important issues to consider in the first weeks and months on the job.
