Risk Management Issues for Nonprofits

Wednesday, May 03, 2017 10:30 am - 12:00 pm  ET
In-person | Atlanta, GA

Nonprofits face many of the same risks that business entities must manage and other risks that are unique to them. Charitable immunity and volunteer protection laws are not enough to protect your organization from financial, reputation, and mission harm. 

Topics include:

  • sources of risk 
  • ways to assess and prioritize threats 
  • strategies to avoid or contain risk
  • resources to help your organization expect the unexpected
