CAIS Events
Tips And Traps For Updating A School’s Bylaws
February 28, 2022 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Online–Anywhere, CA
Standard Registration Rate:$75

A private school’s bylaws are a foundational governance document and should be routinely and
systematically updated for compliance with applicable laws and best practices. Bylaws will
ideally include provisions on topics such as the powers held by the Board of Trustees; how
trustees and officers are selected for their roles and removed therefrom; how Board meetings
are called and conducted; steps required for the Board to act on matters brought before it;
committee mandates; the Head of School’s role on the Board; how trustees can protect
themselves from potential liability in connection with their service; and lessons learned from
the COVID-19 climate.

Sara Schwartz, Founder and President of the law firm Schwartz Hannum PC, will facilitate a
lively, interactive webinar about how to update a private school’s bylaws, including issues
raised by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how bylaws intersect with the policies required by IRS Form 990.

Sara Schwartz is presenting on behalf of CAIS. To learn more about Sara, click here.
