Beyond the Board: Alternatives in Nonprofit Governance 

Nonprofit-corporate governance is dominated by boards of directors, but a traditional board might not be the best structure or fit for every nonprofit. Recent developments in nonprofit-corporate law (and some older, though little-used, provisions) permit a great variety of alternative governance structures—designated bodies, authorized third parties, committees, and members—that can supplement or replace board governance. Use of these alternative structures can meet real, special governance needs of some nonprofits, but implementing alternative structures requires careful consideration, planning, and drafting.

 

William M. Klimon is a Member of Caplin & Drysdale’s Exempt Organizations Group in Washington, D.C. In the past 15 years, he has advised more than 600 charities and other nonprofit organizations across the nation on matters relating to corporate governance and transactions, intellectual-property issues, and other legal matters. He is the Chair of the American Bar Association’s Nonprofit Organizations Committee and is a regular lecturer on topics important to nonprofit leaders. Mr. Klimon has a law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law and an LL.M. in Tax from Georgetown University Law Center.

CLOSING KEYNOTE

The Boardroom of the Future

The workplace is shifting. We are increasingly living in a non-linear, hyper dynamic and digitalized world, with fewer constraints and more variables. Disruption, culture, purpose, innovation, machines and data are the new normal and are making the role of the board and its directors ever more important. 

We all know that the boardroom was designed for a more certain, slower and simpler era.  In this session we will asking what it is going to take for boards to survive in these "adaptive times”? How can we ensure that they are still fit for purpose?

In this session, Paul Smith will lead the audience in a discussion and exploration of how boards and directors can:

•   (Re)define their value to an organization

•   Fundamentally rethink the skills needed for effective decision-making

•   Recalibrate what is expected of them from a widening group of stakeholders 

•   Create fit-for-purpose models to help steer continued success into the Future
