Did you know that 63% of nonprofit organizations have experienced a Directors and Officers liability claim in the last 10 years? Did you know that Directors and Officers claims are filed twice as much in nonprofits than private companies? Did you know that directors and officers can be held personally liable for their own actions and inactions and those of the people they oversee? How do you familiarize the board with your mission and their responsibility to minimize litigation exposures? Do you implement risk management strategies to prevent or mitigate litigation exposure? What have you done to safeguard your organization and the board with the right Directors and Officers Insurance from a reliable carrier? We hope you can join us to learn more about this essential protection for your directors and officers.
