Insurance covers members, but does not cover people you take along.
Directors’ Insurance 

Directors and Executive Officers have a duty to exercise due diligence in overseeing the management of the organization that they SERVE. This involves 3 basic duties:

  1. Duty of Diligence (Duty of Care) Act reasonably, in good faith and in the “ORGANIZATIONS” best interest.
  2. Duty of Loyalty:  Place the interest of the organization before your own.
  3. Duty of Obedience:  Act within the scope of applicable bylaws.

The responsibilities of individuals serving on a non-profit board of directors are similar to those of directors of for-profit companies. However, non-profit organizations especially those that are self funded (do not gain money from government sources – or solicit for funds) have limited resources to indemnify directors and officers or respond to expensive litigation, settlements or damage awards.  Where no indemnification or only partial indemnification is available, the personal assets of directors and officers are at risk, a well as those of the entity itself.  Directors and Officers liability coverage is a “Critical” component of the overall insurance protection package that no non-profit organization should forego, particularly if it wants to attract and retain “qualified” and motivated directors and officers.
