Nonprofit organizations provide essential social services that benefit
communities and their members. These organizations cannot survive without a
solid volunteer Board of Directors assigned to elect officers, adopt
policies and make major financial decisions for the organization. Although
the members of the board are volunteers, there is a certain amount of risk
involved in holding one of these positions. Specifically, even when acting
in good faith, board members are subject to personal liability, which may
affect their personal financial status because of their business decisions.
Therefore, it is imperative that your organization and Board of Directors
understand the risks involved as volunteers, their responsibilities as
board members and the ways in which they can protect themselves from
personal liability. Contact GDI Insurance Agency Inc. today at 209-634-2929 for your California Nonprofit Insurance quote!
Risks and Responsibilities
To combat the chance of affecting the personal liability of board members,
nonprofit organizations should assess the risks involved with holding these
positions. Your organization should first develop a volunteer risk
management committee to identify all risks and pose solutions to minimize
potential harm. In addition, you need to ensure that the board members
understand their governance responsibilities.
