Risk Management for Non Profit Organizations

Greater New Orleans Foundation
919 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA

Risk Management plays an important role in helping an organization identify and control exposures that can contribute to employee injuries and third party claims. The application of the risk management process provides a road map to controlling potential loss causing exposures by reducing the risk of loss and controlling the financial cost of losses that do occur.

This free seminar/workshop will help in understanding the importance of risk management and its critical role in protecting an organizations human, physical and financial assets. The implementation and application of risk management principles and practices contribute to an organization’s financial viability and its ability to fulfill its mission and meet the needs of the constituents they serve.

This workshop will help your organization:

  • Identify exposures (internal and external) that can cause losses
  • Analyze those exposures and historical losses
  • Reduce the risk of loss by eliminating and/or controlling those exposures
  • Control risk cost by transferring risk contractually and/or with insurance
  • Monitoring the effectiveness of your risk management program and practices
