I never worried about legal liability.  I kept up on current regulations, did the right thing and paid E&O insurance. 

As for industry concerns, I'd say fraud and scams.

We do the right thing, but wire fraud is all over the news and happening around the country. We have E & O which had a cyber security endorsement added to it this year, but this is really hard to control.

Lack of disclosure. I would rather lose a sale or a client than live with knowledge that a client willfully hid a material fact from a buyer in order to achieve a closed sale. The buyer will find out and there will be a price to pay.

At this point, none. Solely off of the fact that the local, state or national associations do not care what anyone does, AS LONG AS the dues payments keep coming in to the coffers.
