The Shreveport Times-Janet Parker: Nonprofits must assure public's trust

The Shreveport Times: "Janet Parker: Nonprofits must assure public's trust
March 27, 2006

Recent articles inform us of the unfortunate closure and questionable exposure of another nonprofit agency under cloudy circumstances, at best. This event was followed by a strong letter to The Times from a reader who wisely stressed the responsibility of volunteer boards and the danger inherent in depending solely on chief executive officers to maintain proper policies and ethical procedures, which assure public trust.

Absolutely, the writer makes a valid argument for strong, involved boards rather than accepting -- or allowing -- token participation.
