Directors' and Officers' League Liability Plan

Directors' and Officers' League Liability Plan  

OVERVIEW

Many professionals affiliated with non-profits don't realize how many non-profit groups are hit by lawsuits. Whether there are grounds or not, defending yourself against the accusation of a wrongful act can cost your Junior League money. Lawsuits often name board members, employees, volunteers, or even AJLI itself. 

If you're named in a lawsuit, you may be personally responsible for the litigation cost or the settlement itself. Even a successful defense can be expensive. With the AJLI Directors and Officers Liability Plan, you can arm yourself against the potentially devastating effects a lawsuit can have on not only your organization's assets, but your personal assets as well. The Plan provides comprehensive coverage for the following:

  • Defense costs: your claim will be defended even if allegations are groundless, false or fraudulent.
  • Libel and slander: you're covered for claims which may arise from publications and/or presentations that are made on behalf of AJLI.


Employee-related lawsuits: you're protected if an employee files a claim for wrongful termination or discrimination.
