Ethics, Accountability and Public Trust: Real World Examples on Things that Matter

You know you're supposed to apply ethical principles to your fundraising practices, but what happens when the rubber hits the road? Using real world, challenging situations, we'll discuss perceptions of what is ethical and what is "good business" in the nonprofit sector, how your board's understanding of accountability and ethics can impact your organization, and why being ethical is not "bad for business."

Venue: Arlington Hall at Lee Park
