Serving in a leadership role at a housing provider, as a Board Director or an Officer of the corporation, is an important undertaking. By agreeing to be a Director or Officer, one assumes a number of responsibilities for the behaviour and actions of the corporation you represent. However, some Directors and Officers (D&Os) are unaware of the full legal meaning of this – that they can be held personally responsible for liability associated with the duties or actions of the corporation.
|To support social housing providers in effectively managing and mitigating Directors and Officers risk, HSC has developed a training guide on the subject. The guide covers the following subject areas:
HSC can deliver facilitated sessions where we work with groups of providers in helping them develop their plans for mitigating and reducing D&O risk. For more details on this, contact HSC’s Director of Insurance & Risk Management, Brian Laur.
