Risk Management

While planning fundraisers and activities, your club will want to keep an eye toward safety to avoid accidents. Some activities inherently involve some risk. With others, the risks aren’t as obvious. There’s a lot to know about risk management: what is covered by insurance and what is excluded, what activities beg a waiver, and how to report a claim if an accident does occur. Use these tools to educate yourself and others on how to physically protect participants and financially protect your club.
