waiver imageFMCBC Member Clubs have the option of participating in the FMCBC’s Insurance Program, which includes Third Party Commercial General Liability (CGL) Insurance and Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance.

 

How much does it cost?

These coverages cost an additional $7.00 per individual on top of the FMCBC’s membership fee of $10 per member.

 

What is Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance?

Commercial General Liability Insurance policies are designed to provide protection for claims arising out of the insured’s liability for negligent acts and/or omissions causing injury or damage thru the ownership of property, operations, sale or distribution of products as well as professional services. Coverage includes defense costs and claims settlement. A series of exclusions apply for areas either uninsurable (e.g., intentional acts) or insured through other third party liability policies (e.g., auto liability, directors and officers liability).

 

What is Directors’ and Officers’ Liability (D&O) insurance?

D&O policies are designed to provide protection for officers and directors (and possibly others, including the corporation itself) against liabilities arising out of wrongful acts committed while performing their corporate duties.
