Directors and officers face increased risks and exposure to liability, especially in the COVID-19 (and future post-COVID-19) environment. What do these risks mean for Boards who are trying to assess and utilize effective strategies to manage these risks, while ensuring that their organizations continue to function well? Our presenters show you how to approach these new types of concerns.

  • Learn how to protect Directors and Officers through indemnity clauses
