May 16, 2017

The Greater New Orleans Foundation Organizational Effectiveness Initiative (OE) and Gillis, Ellis & Baker, Inc. are partnering to host a workshop on Director’s & Officer’s insurance coverage. This workshop is designed for Executive Directors, Officers and Board Members.

Protecting Your Leaders: Don’t Leave Your Directors & Board Members At Risk
Tuesday, October 10, 2017
9:00 am – 10:30 am
Greater New Orleans Foundation
919 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA

There’s a fine line between doing good for the community and risking your personal assets. Non-profits may not realize that their board members may be held personally liable for the actions of the organization.

Being on the receiving end of a lawsuit can put a director’s or officer’s reputation and finances on the line and also threaten your organization’s ability to continue serving the community. Learn more about how to protect your organization’s mission and the personal assets of your director and board members.

This workshop will provide information on:

  • How to better protect individual Directors & Officers as well as the entity as a whole
  • How to use D&O insurance as a recruiting tool for savvy board members
  • Why donors will care about your insurance program and history

*This workshop is for informational purposes only.  The foundation staff and trainers are not lawyers nor are they providing legal advice.
