FREE WEBINAR: Insurance and Risk Management for Nonprofits

Is your nonprofit and its board of directors adequately protected in case of liability? Find out at our free webinar presented in partnership with Volunteer Canada.

Nonprofit organizations are not immune from potential claims from employees, board members, and volunteers relating to:

  • Employment Practices (i.e. wrongful dismissal, employee discrimination);
  • Fiduciary Liability (i.e. administration of employee benefits plan);
  • Financial Mismanagement (i.e. board decisions that have adverse financial consequences).

Our free webinar, presented in partnership with Volunteer Canada, will show you how, with the right insurance and tools in place, nonprofits can manage their risk effectively.

What's a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!
