“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.
