    Who Is Watching Our Organizations? Why? What Can We Do About It?

    August 10, 2018 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    This session will incorporate information about the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance 20 Standards for Charity Accountability and how it supports the AFP Code of Ethical Standards.  Participants will consider and discuss terms that Simone Joyaux terms “cage-rattling questions,” as they participate in table dialogs around challenging ethical issues.  At the end of this session, participants will be comfortable presenting the topics for discussions by staff or board about the issues of trust, accountability and the obligations and entitlement of being a part of the not-for-profit community.   They will also be familiar with and understand why becoming accredited by the BBB of Southern Arizona is good for all.

    Note:  This session has been approved for 1 hour of Ethics for CFRE.
