Does Your PTA Need Insurance?

What would happen if…

Someone gets injured at one of your events?
The cash box disappears?
A member distributes false information?
A member forges a signature?
The board makes a bad decision resulting in a lawsuit?
Your PTA unit just bought new computers and they were stolen?
Your PTA unit gets sued for running elections incorrectly?

You may believe that your PTA unit can’t afford insurance, but if something like this happens to you, and you are not adequately insured, your board members could be personally held financially responsible. If your organization has no insurance, whether you are staff or a volunteer, consider running out the door now until it does! Your PTA unit cannot afford to not have insurance.

Protect your volunteers and manage risk responsibly to avoid lawsuits. Insure to be sure.
