MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Attorney General’s office has released a guidebook to help the state’s nonprofit organizations manage their affairs.

The guidebook, released Wednesday, gives current and prospective board members of the state’s nonprofits an overview of their legal and ethical responsibilities, along with best practices for nonprofit boards of directors.

There are thousands of nonprofits in Vermont, ranging from animal shelters to soup kitchens and art galleries.

Beyond the services they provide, the organizations collectively manage billions of dollars in assets and employ tens of thousands of people.

The guide can be found on the attorney general’s website.
