As a nonprofit, you engage in many different activities. Your organization may own property, employ staff, engage volunteers, provide services to the community in need, publicize your efforts through written materials, speeches and the Internet, and raise donations from the public. Each of these activities involves risks to your organization that could be financially devastating unless they are recognized, mitigated, and if necessary, insured against.

Risk management is the process by which you identify potential risks from your activities, take steps to prevent any potential risks from materializing, and insuring against any financial claims made against your organization.

This series of webinars will help you get a better understanding of insurance and risk management. It will discuss the basics about different types of insurance coverage, and provisions commonly found in insurance policies. It will also discuss what you need to know when buying insurance, how to read your insurance policies to know what they cover, and how to handle an insurance claim when it arises. It will also focus on helping your organization think about risk management and what steps you can take to begin developing a risk management program.

The sessions will be led by experienced practitioners in the insurance field, including leading attorneys that represent policy holders in disputes with their insurance carriers, insurance brokers and senior claims management professionals.

This course is designed for board members, executive directors, chief administrative officers and other nonprofit staff and volunteers responsible for risk management and insurance purchasing.
