Identifying and Dealing with Conflicts of Interest


As low as $49 per board member (based on a 10-member board)

Does your board fully understand what a conflict of interest is and how ethically sound decisions can profoundly impact your board’s goals? In this course you will learn not only how to identify a potential conflict of interest, but how to avoid them and what to do, should one present itself.


Board Directors, employees and even volunteers, have a responsibility to ensure that the integrity of the organization is appropriately considered with respect to all activities and decisions. It is imperative that with these activities and decisions, conflicts of interest be strictly avoided so that the Organization is never placed in a compromising position.

With this course you will receive a detailed 12-page governance guide, 20-minute video training module and a sample governing policy you can start using today to identify potential conflicts of interest, declare them, and start implementing a policy toward zero tolerance.

  • How to identify a potential conflict of interest
  • How a Code of Ethical Conduct works
  • Defining conflicts of interest within your organization
  • Whose responsibility it is to report conflicts and to whom
