From time to time PAC executive members express concern about the liability they take on in their PAC role.  Volunteers are covered by the school insurance when volunteering at a school sanctioned event or activity. This applies to being sued if an accident were to happen while volunteering. Another time one be concerned about liability would be when signing equipment rental agreements.  As a best practice, no PAC members should sign rental waivers for school sanctioned, school community events (Such as inflatables or other equipment for a fun fair).  The Staff member on the committee or sponsoring the club/team should be the one to sign such documents or even better the administrator.  Secretary Treasurer Mark Walsh provided this feedback to a similar question a few years ago.
