I’m a member of the board of directors of a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that supports the local ballet company. Can I encourage people to buy tickets to this month’s production of The Nutcracker? To what extent am I allowed to aid in the ballet’s promotion?
Can I play golf, have dinner, or vacation with lawyers that regularly appear before me in the courtroom? Quite a few of my friends are lawyers, so naturally we spend a lot of time together. What are the rules about this?
