The Legal Counsel Board Member will provide guidance in all matters pertaining to the nonprofit sector, such as with drawing up contracts, copyrights and trademarks, and ensuring that the actions and endeavors of Building Community Bridges, Inc. (BCB) are in accordance with tax-exemption and non-profit laws. Additionally, BCB is planning to form a social enterprise and the Legal Counsel Board Member will be instrumental in research and planning for this venture. The social enterprise is a rice company with rice grown by our partner village to provide the village with employment opportunities and sustainable income, thereby reducing dependency on foreign aid and promoting dignity and self-reliance. This opportunity is virtual with flexible times/hours.
