As a nonprofit affordable housing developer, it is critical to get your corporate governance “ducks” in a row—it’s never too late to start! In this session, the first in a series, we will begin to discuss ways to save your board time and money, and ensure that your fiscal and regulatory house is in order. Topics to be covered include:

  • Indemnification and D&O insurance—how does it work and what should your by-laws say?
  • State exemptions and registrations—what do you need to do?
  • Conflicts of interest policies—how do you best comply with local corporate and federal tax laws?

The webinar will be of interest to nonprofit developers, nonprofits—such as churches or other organizations—that are considering developing housing, and nonprofits that are considering developing commercial property in underserved areas.

About this webinar series…

Nonprofits can successfully build housing for their underserved constituencies, and the results can be rewarding for the landlord, tenant, investor, and the community as a whole. But real estate development is not a place for the uninformed. Educate yourself and your board about the pros and cons of affordable housing development, so that you can make the most of every dollar contributed and every hour volunteered to your nonprofit.

In this webinar series, we will take you from a starting point of basic efficient nonprofit governance through the process of financing your housing or non-residential project.
