Risk Management & HR Basics

February 7, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

This workshop will cover two elements crucial to safeguarding your organization: Risk Management and Human Resources basics. Risk management is an essential part of your nonprofit’s operation and leadership and ensures that your organization can safely carry out its mission, while protecting its client population as well as the organization’s employees and volunteers.  Staffing decisions are among the most important decisions that nonprofit organizations make. Therefore, the second half of the workshop will focus on basic HR principles and practices to help you understand ways to mitigate risk.

Topics include:

  • Risks particular to the nonprofit sector (working with volunteers and risky populations)
  • Potential liabilities for an organization
  • Understanding insurance
  • Best practices for risk management
  • Understanding basic employment law
  • Basic nonprofit HR principals and practices


Who should attend: nonprofit chief executives and senior level staff. Registration is limited to two per organization.
