Volunteers Alert: Are You President/CEO of a Nonprofit?

 Volunteers Alert: Are You President/CEO of a Nonprofit? Charity boards

By: Eugene Fram

Nonprofit volunteer directors who hold the title of President/CEO and then have the chief operations officer listed as the Executive Director may be in for a surprise. This part-time person may be perceived as having final operating authority.

 In the event of a legal challenge, this President/CEO may have some additional legal liabilities that other volunteer directors may not have.  If a volunteer is in this position, it is best to ask legal counsel if there are potential additional liabilities emanating from the corporate chanter and or state laws.

Some nonprofit organizations add the CEO designation to the Executive Director title, so it is clear who has final operational authority.
