Trustees’ responsibility

Trustees, treasurers and others acting on behalf of a meeting, committee or other Quaker body ought not to be held personally liable for any loss so long as they have acted reason­ably, in good faith and on the best advice available to them. It is the responsibility of the meeting, committee or other Quaker body to exercise the necessary care, and in particular to set bounds to the latitude of decision allowed to its treasurer and others acting on its behalf. Indemnification against personal loss and liability cannot be expected if these bounds are exceeded.
