Just a couple of questions before I sign on:
Will the organization be legally constituted?
Will it have a budget of any sort and/or will it raise funds?
Will officers be indemnified or insured against damages?
New Scenario: School X organizes USU with USUDA. Something bad happens,
a lawsuit begins. Campus X dos not want to be responsible so they sue
the organizers, USUDA. USUDA has no policy, so officers are responsible.
Old scenario: No one to blame, so host has to handle it.
This is what my legal adviser has told me to ask. I am told that if it
is not insured, don't be an officer.
Not trying to rain on any parade, but curious.
