On January 16, 2013, Deena Jo Schneider and Cynthia Fischer presented at a program on board governance and structure held for the benefit of the Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance (YANA) Roundtable.

The YANA Roundtable is comprised of 25 Yale alumni serving on non-profit boards. The group is tasked with sharing best practices, information, experiences, and resources for the benefit of the larger YANA group. This program on board governance and structure was the first in a series of issues discussions that YANA has identified as important to service on non-profit boards.

Ms. Fischer’s presentation dealt with fiduciary duty, board policies and upcoming changes in NY law. Ms. Schneider added commentary, including the practical application of these points and she facilitated a discussion of the issues among the other YANA Roundtable members attending.
