NORWALK, CT – October 17, 2012 – Senior Living Business Interactive will be hosting a vital webcast to address legal problems your board can avoid on Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Is your board good, or is it lucky? Increased litigation against senior living providers and senior care facilities poses a financial risk to those organizations and in certain cases, exposes board members to claims of personal liability. What conduct/actions/decisions are appropriate for board members and what might make them—and the organization—vulnerable? How do you protect the organization’s assets? Against what types of risk must the board—and top management—protect the organization? Our panel of experts will shed light on these issues and explain how your board—and your organization—can set policies that effectively mitigate risk.

The moderator of the webcast, Deborah Cloud, Vice President & Senior Editor at Leading Age, will pose topical questions including: What board structure ensures smooth operations but also helps avoid legal problems? What’s an optimum board/management/resident relationship? What are their proper roles? What legal missteps can create personal liability for board members? What compliance issues create problems for senior living/senior care providers?

Our hand-selected panel of experts will address these issues and answer any pressing questions the audience chooses to submit. Our experts include: Karla Dreisbach, Senior Director of Compliance, Peace Church Compliance Program; Joseph Hasson, Partner, Ungaretti & Harris LLP; Pamela Kaufmann, Partner, Hanson Bridgett LLP; and Rick Stiffney, President and CEO, Mennonite Health Services Alliance.

The editor of Senior Living Business Interactive, Jane E. Zarem, invites you to take part in this can’t-miss webcast. Discover how to protect your organization’s assets and avoid litigation. Our panel will discuss how to structure your board, how to avoid trouble and how to manage risk and compliance.

If you’re interested in avoiding litigation, protecting your assets and other risks the board or top management should know about, then you won’t want to miss this webcast, entitled “Governance: Legal Problems Your Board Can Avoid,” on Wednesday, October 31 at 1:00 pm ET.
