"Just what I needed..."

A few things NOT to do as a nonprofit board member,
according to the Missouri Attorney General's office...
That's what one of the participants in yesterday's program on "Legal Basics for Nonprofit Board Members" had to say about what he learned. UMSL's Dan Sise gave a great overview of the nonprofit sector, board members' duties, potential liability (& important protections), and future issues and trends in the nonprofit world.

Dan will join us again next month on Thursday, May 26 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. to present "Grant Management Basics" - join us to learn about the contracts, disbursement process, reporting requirements and other issues that come into play once your nonprofit is awarded a grant. The program is free, but registration is appreciated (click here).

Some books from our collection -
you should check them out!

Finally, a reminder that on Monday at noon we will resume the "Get to Know the Grants & Foundation Center" program, held on the 4th Monday of each month. Come by and learn about the resources available (physical and virtual) to help your nonprofit succeed!
