Serving Without Being Served

Psychologists and others medical professionals frequently are presented with opportunities to serve on the boards of hospitals and other non-profit health organizations.  While these opportunities can be professionally fulfilling and provide an additional avenue for psychiatrists to serve the public interest, serving on a non-profit board is not without its risks.  Please join us October 25, 2017 as we discuss general legal issues and grounds for liability for non-profit organizations in Georgia and much more!

Our topics will include:

  • Risk Environment for Non-Profit Boards
  • Legal Issues for Non-Profit Board Members
  • Cybersecurity Issues and Board Director Liability
  • Privilege Issues

The webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 3:00 pm.

As always, there is no charge for our webinar. We hope to see you there!
