The charitable governance topics in this publication include the following:

  • Emergency Provision for Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporations
    • Notice of director meetings
    • Quorum requirements
    • Relocation of principal office
    • Modification of lines of succession
    • Participation in board meetings via conference calls
  • Taking Board Action Without a Meeting
  • Virtual Meeting of Members of Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporations
