 TOPIC: What Happens When Trusted Employees and Volunteers Violate Their Trust

Wednesday, February 22nd
11:45 - 1:00 pm

Join SLSAE for a brown bag lunch and a discussion on Fraud in the nonprofit/association space.

While we expect and believe our employees and volunteers are working in the best interests of our company and organization, the truth is that they may not.

  • Trusting employees and volunteers is a necessary risk. 
  • Why would someone we trust violate that trust?
  • What risks do we face as a result of trusting someone?
  • What are the costs of trust violations?
  • How can we mitigate our risk?

As long as we have employees and volunteers, we will have the risk of trust violations.  Join us for discussion about those risks, their cost, and proactive steps to mitigate them.
