Should person be president of two nonprofits at the same time?

 

Is it wise to not allow the president of a nonprofit corporation to preside over two organizations at the same time? Our current president is now president of another nonprofit group. But she is not doing a good job with us. So I don't think it's in the organization’s best interest to preside over two at the same time.  What do you think?

Answer

Talk with the Editor Is Now Ask Don Kramer!

You can discuss your personal nonprofit legal questions directly with editor Don Kramer. We can schedule a phone call at a mutually agreeable time, usually within two business days of your request.

You can ask about stories in our recent issues, one of our recent questions, or a particular question of nonprofit law facing your organization. Feel free to gather your people around your conference phone if you want others to hear the answers.

Question of the Week

April 17-24, 2018
Our 501(c)(4) social welfare organization would like to sell its assets to a for-profit and dissolve. Our articles of incorporation mandate that proceeds of the dissolution should flow to the member organizations who are board members and whose organizations are all 501(c)(3) organizations. What concerns would such an arrangement represent? Is there any way to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest here? Answer
