For more than a century, members of the Mecklenburg County Bar have dedicated their unique skills and knowledge to ensure that our community is healthy, humane and just.  Lawyers have demonstrated their commitment to enhancing the quality of our civic life in countless ways.  Strategic pro bono representation, elected and appointed office, nonprofit board service, and thought leadership by lawyers have created meaningful and lasting change in Mecklenburg County and beyond. 

 

During this lunch conversation, Dianne Chipps Bailey of Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson will explore the evolving landscape confronting lawyers in community service.  She will discuss strategies to manage personal and professional risk associated with voluntarism in an increasingly complex regulatory environment marked by vigorous governmental enforcement actions and heightened media scrutiny. 

 

Dianne Chipps Bailey, Robinson  Bradshaw & Hinson -- Ms. Bailey's practice is dedicated to the representation of nonprofit organizations, their senior management and volunteer leaders.  She has extensive experience advising a diverse group of nonprofits in all aspects of their organization, administration and management.  She has represented schools and universities, churches and other religious organizations, endowments, supporting organizations, corporate and family foundations, sports philanthropies, museums, business leagues, social clubs including fraternal organizations, trade organizations, and a complement of charitable groups.
