With pre-conference workshops on Friday 21st October, the conference includes an exciting array of speakers and information, there is something for everybody and every budget.
Early in December, your society should have received the insurance proposal which must be completed and returned to our broker, Christine Reith - AJ Gallagher. It is very important that the completed proposal is sent to Christine as soon as possible because the information provided will form the basis of your renewal premium.
If you have not received the proposal please email or phone Helen Turner, HQ Insurance Officer - 0412 708 401 (Insurance Renewal was due 31 March 2021)
Public Liability Insurance costs, particularly for small non-profit groups, can be an expense beyond their means. HQ Inc., through its insurance broker, offers Public Liability Insurance under blanket group insurance. Currently, the Public Liability Insurance coverage offered is $20 million.
