Webinar: ASSOCIATIONS and The Importance of Your Insurance Program

Webinar: ASSOCIATIONS and The Importance of Your Insurance Program

September 29, 2021 | 2 PM EST – 3 PM EST: Many associations believe they’re fully covered by their insurance policy. Often, they find out the hard way that they’re not. Exclusions, for example, create gaps that must be covered by a separate policy (like professional liability). It’s important to review your own program before it’s too late.

This upcoming free event will be an “insurance 101” for associations, specifically, and how they can make sure they are covered for their risk and exposure.
