It’s Fun Until Something Goes Wrong:
Know your event liability
November 29, 2016

Staff gatherings, holiday parties, live convention demonstrations and Board outings provide vital education and bonding opportunities. But what if something goes wrong? What if a participant gets hurt? What if property is damaged?

You might think your standard contract with vendors or the meeting venue will protect against liability. Chances are, it won’t. Instead, your organization could be held legally—and financially—responsible for making things right. Those costs could be staggering.

That’s why it’s vital to have the right legal documents, the right insurance and the right meeting planning practices in place before your next event.  Here’s where to start.

In this 90-minute webinar, Jeff Altman—an attorney specializing in association liability and risk management—reveals how events can go wrong and what you can do ahead of time to keep people and property safe, and protect your organization from potential liability.

You’ll also discover where risks are most likely to arise during your meetings and events and the smartest strategies for defusing those risks—and for using insurance to protect against devastating financial responsibility if something still goes wrong. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
