Transforming Not-for Profit Leadership



Almost a year ago, staff and board at Vantage Point began to critically consider our organization’s Indigenous cultural competency. Our journey began with a (not so simple) question: why, when, and how would we acknowledge that our offices and training space are located on traditional Aboriginal territory? As we endeavoured to make space for this important conversation, we reached out to knowledge-keepers and more informed perspectives to provide guidance and support in the journey. Many talented people in our community responded from both within our own team and outside Vantage Point.


We are often asked by boards that we work with: do we really need Director and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance? We’ve finally had a chance to go to the experts on this one for this one: Director and Officers Liability Insurance: A Necessary Cost? Kawkab Jamal, agency owner of The Co-operators office at 5564 Cambie Street, Vancouver, leads us through the key benefits of D&O insurance, the issues to consider when exploring or revisiting your coverage, and the risks of not having this type of insurance (because neither ignorance nor resignation is a defence!).
