History Queensland Inc. was established on 15 July 1995. Local and Family History Societies operate throughout Queensland because of the dedication of thousands of members who give their services voluntarily to promote their common interest.
Who are we?
HQ offers member organisations specialised insurance including Public Liability and Voluntary Workers insurance, publishes a quarterly newsletter, hosts a Facebook page, and coordinates a biennial conference/fair for members to showcase their organisation.
Thank you to the Queensland State Archives, Runcorn who hosted the 2021 AGM. After the business of the meeting Niles Elvery, Senior Archivist at Queensland State Archives, gave an interesting presentation about the Archives followed by a Behind The Scenes Tour. It was an enjoyable day for all who attended both in person and by Zoom.
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.
