Gwenyth Stadig, Miller Thomson

Gwenyth Stadig, a lawyer in Miller Thomson LLP’s Social Impact Group, will present on key issues for legal practitioners to be aware of when considering whether to join the board of directors of a charity or not-for-profit organization. While it is an important and socially responsible endeavour to assist these types of organizations there are risks to be aware of. Gwenyth will suggest several key questions for legal practitioners to ask about the organization before joining the board so that practitioners have more awareness regarding what they are getting themselves into. She will also discuss how practitioners should be aware of potential conflicts of interest while acting as a director and how practitioners should actively seek to avoid them. The presentation will then discuss the related topic of how to avoid receiving - or being perceived to receive - a personal benefit while acting as director of a charity. 

This presentation is targeted towards lawyers and paralegals, as well as other members of the Waterloo Region Law Association such as law students.
