Ethics and conflicts of interest issues are sometimes considered common sense or basic board topics. Board members can be tempted to bypass these issues for seemingly more urgent matters facing their organizations. Some of the most significant organizational risks can be averted if board members make ethical conduct a lens for every action they consider.
In this session we will focus on ethical and conflict of interest issues for nonprofit and public hospital district boards operating in the state of Washington. We will cover board duties and the law. We will consider the ways in which ethics impacts the everyday decisions facing board members and their organizations. Attendees will learn practical tips and tools for ensuring ethics guides the work of your board into the future.
