Is this question with regard to local chapters, conference organizers,
or OSGeo officers in general?  If Tyler comes up with a "Directors and
Officers" insurance quote, would you be interested in reviewing it to see
if it does what you think is needed?

I'm quite concerned that comprehensive D&O insurance that covers us globally
is likely to be very expensive, and that "standard" D&O insurance is not
likely to give you the sort of fail-safe coverage that you seem to want.
