Additional insurance available:

Directors and Officers insurance:

The club’s Commercial General Liability policy responds to law suits which result from a bodily injury or property damage in which it is felt the club bears some responsibility. Your policy covers this and also covers directors and others associated with hosting club activities for these types of claims. However there are other things for which a director or officer may be sued which have nothing to do with a bodily injury or property damage. Typically these law suits are the result of a wrongful act by a director and are filed by another director, club member or a financial institution. Director’s and Officer’s policies are separate policies with specialized wordings to deal with these situations.

The CFMA board of directors is covered by the umbrella insurance, but because the branch clubs have different directors than the parent organization, the branch club directors aren’t covered. This is what “Directors & Officers” insurance is for – and it is separate from the general liability insurance because many clubs feel they don’t need the extra coverage, its just an add-on if they want it. Costs are usually in the range of $100 – $150.
