On Friday, January 18, 2019, Joel Martin, Audit Group and Contracted Services Shareholder, presented to the 2018-19 participants of Leadership Beaver County on the topic “Fiduciary Responsibilities of Non-Profit Boards”.  Drawing from his over 20 years of professional experience in providing audit and consulting services to numerous clients and their boards of directors in both the non-profit and governmental sectors, Martin discussed the fundamental roles, responsibilities, and liability of fiduciaries.  He also offered his insights and suggestions regarding best practices of effective board leaders and members.
