Conflict of Interest: Tool for Chair

Conflicts of interest can be defined as any situation in which an individual director is in a position to exploit a professional or official capacity in some way for their personal benefit. The appearance of a conflict of interest is present if there is a potential for the personal interests of an individual to clash with fiduciary duties, such as  a situation that has the potential to undermine the impartiality of a person because of the possibility of a clash between the director's self interest and the board interest or the organization's interest.
