BIE - Board Member Insurance-Liability
Members of the board are public officials whose powers and duties can only be exercised via a decision of the board. As such, the members of the board act as agents of the board and will not be placed in a position of personal liability for the performance of the responsibilities vested in them or assigned by the district.
Therefore, the district will maintain insurance to protect the board or members of the board. This insurance will protect these individuals against liability on account of damages or injury to persons and property resulting from any act or omission of the board, or an individual in his/her official capacity as a member of the board or resulting solely out of his/her membership on the board subject to terms and conditions of purchased insurance.
