For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories

The video is divided into five vignettes, each providing a broad scope of legal issues that will be useful for associations of all kinds, whether large, medium, or small in size and whether national, state, or local in focus. In addition, narration interspersed between each vignette will help the viewer determine whether the legal principle depicted in the vignette is relevant to a particular circumstance or association.
Legal Risk Management for Associations is not intended as legal advice or as a substitute for consultation with any association's legal counsel; however, it should help association volunteers and employees identify potential legal problems and seek legal assistance if needed.
