Risk Assessment Concerns for Nonprofit Boards and Staff during COVID
February 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
A free webinar as part of Mass Cultural Council’s Recover, Rebuild, Renew Series.
This workshop will introduce principles and concerns regarding risk assessment for nonprofit organizations. Understanding that nonprofit organizations are stewarded by both boards of directors and staff members, the target audience for this workshop is both board members themselves and the staff members (executive directors, artistic directors, operations managers, program managers, etc.) who work closely to and advise those boards. While this workshop will focus on risk management issues arising due the COVID-19 pandemic—including potential closure and other exit strategies—we expect the principles discussed during the program can apply to a variety of external challenges.
Format: The format of this workshop will be a 1.5-hour virtual webinar, with time built-in for questions and answers. This webinar will be presented by nonprofit attorneys and an insurance expert.
Outcomes: At the end of this session, participants will be able to understand basic insurance basics, including common vocabulary, a foundational understanding of Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance and its costs, and what general commercial liability insurance (GCL) policies do and do not cover with respect to COVID-19.
