Are You Insured?
Your organization undoubtedly has property insurance for damage from fire, weather and other unforeseen events. Adding to that list, your organization must acquire liability insurance. Liability insurance for the people who work and volunteer for your organization is also a must.
Now, the reality is your insurance broker or insurance company has probably already sold you a policy or rider for your organization that includes liability coverage for your people. So, you’re probably covered but it is a good idea for your independent board and organization leadership to review your organization’s coverage with your trusted insurance expert to ensure that you have the correct policy, coverage, and amounts appropriate for your organization.
