Directors and Officers Liability Insurance

If someone slips and falls, that’s covered by general liability insurance. General liability also covers things like bodily injury and property damage that the insured is legally obligated to pay. But directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance covers the professional decisions concerning not-for-profit organizations like COABE.

Employees and volunteers who are involved with your organization may be putting their personal assets at risk. Chubb has created a comprehensive D&O liability insurance policy specifically to help protect the directors, officers, trustees, employees, and volunteers of your organization.
