The New York Alliance Risk Advisory Committee (RAC)

    The RAC is a committee comprised of NY Alliance members interested in working on resources that will benefit all members in controlling losses and reportable incidents while improving quality outcomes.

    Risk Management is the process by which significant risks are identified, evaluated and controlled.  It's about making the most of opportunities, making the right decisions and achieving pre-determined objectives.  Risk management is a process that identifies loss exposures faced by an organization and select the most appropriate techniques or solutions for treating those exposures.  It is an essential part of a non-profit organization.  It also ensures that the non-profit’s actions will not impair the people it is supporting, the public, and the organization’s employees and volunteers.
