Webinar | The Law of Doing Good Things
Sponsored by Great Wolf Lodge

When: Wednesday, June 22, 2016, at 2 p.m. EDT

In our litigious society, anyone can be sued for anything—even good things! In this unique and informative session, participants will consider scenarios highlighting the liability issues associated with integrating social responsibility into the meetings industry. We will discuss the parameters of food donation laws and explore the realities and myths of Good Samaritan laws, including the less well-known “Bad Samaritan” laws. Find out who is really protected under the Volunteer Protection Act. You can and should do good things… but you should also protect yourself and your organization along the way.

Learning Objectives
1. Develop effective food donation policies and programs.
2. Communicate the limitations of personal risk to potential volunteers.
3. Evaluate the risk and responsibility for rendering aid (or failing to render aid) to those in need.
