1/25 WEBINAR TO FOCUS ON BOARD MEMBER ETHICS

From London’s Baring’s Bank to Enron and WorldCom, lack of attention to ethics can be a corporation’s Achilles’ heel, with the potential for one employee to single-handedly destruct even the most established of companies.

On Wednesday, Jan. 25th from noon to 1 p.m., we'll be hosting a free Webinar for executive directors and non-profit volunteer board members addressing the ethical responsibilities of board members.

“The appearance of impropriety and illegality can be detrimental to non-profit organizations,” said Marvin and Company Managing Director Kevin McCoy, CPA. “Board members must be involved in the governance of an organization to a level that assures improper and illegal acts don’t occur.”

Kevin, who will lead the one-hour presentation, stressed that all board members must understand the mission and culture of the organization and be sure that a code of ethics is enforced throughout the organization.

“The dealings board members have with their organizations should be addressed and conflicts identified,” he said. “This Webinar will focus on all of the above issues, as well as provide tips on addressing ethical issues and dilemmas.”

Kevin, who has more than 25 years experience in tax and financial planning and litigation support, handles clients that represent a variety of businesses and industries. A past president of the Northeast Chapter of the New York State Society of CPAs, he has expertise servicing non-profits, privately held small businesses, professional practices and governments.

PC-based attendees are required to have Windows® 7, Vista, XP or a 2003 Server, while Macintosh®-based attendees need Mac OS X 10.5 or newer.
