Nonprofit organizations of all sizes can come under threat of litigation from vendors, donors, competitors, employees, volunteers and even government regulators. Moreover, those serving on boards may be held personally liable for the actions and inactions of themselves and the people they oversee-although many don't realize it. Without the proper coverage, it can be difficult to cover costs of legal fees or damage awards if faced with a lawsuit.  This session, presented by Travelers, helps organizations understand and demystify Nonprofit Directors & Officers Liability, Employment Practices Liability and Fiduciary Liability coverage.  Join us to learn how to discuss insurance
