The Roles and Responsibilities of Board Members - 2024 Nonprofit OpCon: Streamlining Processes & Operations for NY Nonprofits


On June 6, 2024, Tannenbaum Helpern Trusts and Estates, Co-Chair, Yolanda Kanes, will be presenting during NYN Media's 2024 Nonprofit OpCon on the panel, The Roles and Responsibilities of Board Members, at 2:20pm.

Program Description: One of the major challenges that so many boards struggle with is understanding board member roles and responsibilities and how to fulfill them. Being a board member is more than a résumé builder as they need to be committed to following through on promises and assisting the organization to the best of their abilities. They also need to fully support the work, represent the organization’s mission, and be dedicated spokespersons for the cause. The board should do all they can to reach organizational goals, but members still have a responsibility to follow the organization’s rules.

Guaranteed Maximum Price Construction Agreements: Fact or Fiction?


On June 26, 2024 from 1-2pm, Tannenbaum Helpern Construction & Design partners, Kenneth Block and Brandon Reiner, along with Richard Browne of Sterling Project Development, will be presenting a PLI webinar on guaranteed maximum price construction agreements.

Program Description: One of the fundamental issues facing owners in construction contracting is cost containment. Only by meeting the owner’s budgetary constraints can the owner satisfy its obligations to partners, co-developers, lenders, public agencies and others. The selection, application and enforcement of a particular contract delivery method, i.e., stipulated sum, cost-plus or guaranteed maximum price (GMP), is the key to a successful project. This program, drawing on the knowledge of an experienced project manager and accomplished construction attorneys, will explore contract delivery methods, with an emphasis on GMP construction management agreements. Among others, these topics will be discussed:

  • Types of construction contracts and how the risks of cost, time and performance of the work are allocated
  • Legal and business considerations in selecting the delivery methods and the pros and cons of a GMP
  • Understanding and negotiating the elements of a GMP, including fees, contingencies, and project schedules
