Mitigate Exposures With an Enterprise Risk Management Strategy

By Scott Konrad for the American Society of Association Executives

Taking ownership of an association’s risk profile and proactively managing potentially crippling threats to the entity is sound governance. Identifying exposures and mitigating those risks is part of the enterprise risk management process. Here’s how to get started.

This includes strategic exposures, such as succession planning, reputational damage, or revocation of tax-exempt status, as well as financial risks like investment and credit risk and macroeconomic shifts tied to geopolitical conditions.
