The Nonprofit Insurance Crisis: What You Need to Know

Do you know how to position your organization for the best possible renewal outcome? Don’t know what that means? Learn how to understand and prepare for current market conditions which critically affect your organization’s insurance.

The market for nonprofit insurance is in crisis. In what could be labeled as ‘the perfect storm’, nonprofits providing health and human services in our communities are battling against what is believed to be the ‘hardening’ of property and casualty insurance markets. (That’s a less competitive market which makes it harder to find options for insurance. During this time insurance markets will enact stricter standards as to what risks they’ll cover—making a high demand for insurance, but a lower supply of available coverage.) 

With no end to this hard market in sight, this webinar will provide timely and relevant info to help nonprofits navigate the current marketplace.
