At times, organizations host special events that contribute to the community spirit, quality of life, and the local economy. While these events offer opportunities for fun, they also create often overlooked liability exposures. Even if the organization is not directly involved in the planning or hosting the special event, it may still have liability exposure if the organization allows services, resources, or property to be used for the activity or event. For risk management purposes, special events may include parades, golf tournaments, festivals, celebrations, fairs and sporting events. Planning and evaluating proposed events are critical steps for identifying potential hazards and developing effective controls. Attendees will learn about the potential risks and claims that can arise against their organization and ways to mitigate those risks.
