Kurtz, Daniel L. and Paul, Sarah E. Managing Conflicts of Interest 2nd ed. Washington D.C.: BoardSource, 2006 658.422 Kurtz 2nd ed.
ISBN 1-58686-078-X

The third edition of Managing Conflicts of Interest is a thorough update with approximately 25 percent new material. This book seeks to demystify many of the legal rules relating to conflicts of interest that are applicable to nonprofit board members and executive staff, giving current and prospective board members the knowledge they need to serve with confidence. Because there are many legal definitions and nuances involved, the text seeks to create both a common understanding of conflicts of interest and a common vocabulary with which to discuss conflict issues.
