Associations: The Importance of Your Insurance Program | Thompson grants

The Importance of Your Association's Insurance Program

Webinar • Monday, January 31, 2022 • 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE Credit 


Never renew your association’s insurance without taking a fresh look at coverage, premiums and overall risk management.

Every year, insurers make changes that can have a major impact on costs and exposure. New risks and claim scenarios arise, too—especially with the pandemic continuing to reshape the association community.

It’s essential to benchmark your current program and adopt association best practices for fully managing both risk and exposure. Here’s where to start.

Make sure you’re fully covered. You’ll learn how to keep policy gaps, coverage limits and exclusions from creating unpleasant surprises. You’ll also explore real-world claim scenarios.  Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
