Comprising the roundtable are:

·Kris Krouse, executive director of Shirley Heinze Land Trust Inc., which protects, restores and manages some 1,200 acres of natural land in northwest Indiana;

·Andrea Proulx Buinicki, founder, president and philanthropic advisor of Giving Focus, which works with families and entrepreneurs to create charitable giving strategies;

·Jane Lump, a communication consultant with more than 25 years of experience helping employers advance understanding of important business issues with key internal stakeholders.

Admission is free to the program, which is intended to provide insight about best practices within corporate governance.

“Whether your not-for-profit is highly regulated or your organization simply ascribes to principles of practice on a voluntary basis out of a desire to be a soundly operated, accountable and ethical organization, this roundtable discussion is sure to address some basic questions and concerns regarding how to govern ethically and legally,” Purdue Calumet Accounting Instructor and program coordinator Angela Crossin said.

Purdue Calumet’s Department of Accounting is hosting the roundtable. The Powers Computer Education Building is located in the campus’ north wing, accessible from 169th Street.
