2) Farmers’ Market Directors and Officers Insurance

The members of your board of directors are responsible for overseeing your business activities; they’re required to act in good faith and in the best interest of the organization. When something goes wrong and your organization faces a lawsuit, board members and other officers may be held personally responsible, to the point that their resignation or board indemnity may not be enough.

With Directors and Officers coverage, your board members are protected from exposure to lawsuits against your organization.
