Resolving Trustee Disputes

Trustee disputeLast week I spoke on the issue of resolving disputes in the boardroom at the Texas Bar CLE Governance of Nonprofit Organizations Seminar. My talk discussed common issues leading to disputes, responses to disputes, when to seek help from a third party (facilitator, mediator, arbitrator) and when litigation may be called for.  The paper for the presentation also discusses the when and how of splitting a private foundation, terminating a private foundation into a donor advised fund, or simply terminating a private foundation. The paper was primarily written by my colleague at Bourland, Wall & Wenzel, Megan Cunningham.

Here are links to the paper and slides.
