Kiwanis is a service organization, but the law still holds the organization liable for its negligent acts that might cause injury. Risk of injury to persons and of damage to property of others exists in all Kiwanis activities. Risk management analyzes basic risk factors and discovers those than can be managed so claims will not result.
