Management and Board Leadership After Enron

11/18/2004:   Following on the heels of Enron's cataclysmic bankruptcy and the ensuing scandal, Congress set out to make sure no corporations would fall prey to the same fate by enacting a federal law concerning management of organizations, boards of directors, and external auditors. Although most of the law, entitled Sarbanes-Oxley, is limited to for-profit organizations, some of the provisions also apply to the ways child welfare agencies and other nonprofits go about their business. In case you missed the July–August 2004 issue of Children's Voice magazine, or if you'd like to forward an electronic version on to one of your colleagues, we've posted the article in our online archives. Click here to read more about Sarbanes-Oxley and its impact on the way child welfare agencies go about their business in the future.
