The Soapbox and Toolbox for New York State's Nonprofits

Board Liability

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance is a necessity for any nonprofit protecting the vulnerability of the volunteer board member. NYCON's D&O Program offers Limits of Liability of $1,000,000 or $2,000,000 per claim and aggregate. The NYCON-sponsored policy not only includes coverage for all directors, officers, and employees -- it also covers staff, volunteers, and committee members as well. We are pleased to offer a comprehensive, low-cost policy, underwritten by Chubb/Executive Risk.
