The NRG is pleased to offer Chapter Clubs optional liability insurance to cover club activities for the protection of the club and its members arising from injuries to people or property.
The NRG has liability insurance coverage that allows us to offer NRG Chapter Clubs liability insurance for $100 per year Complete coverage details and applications can be obtained by contacting the NRG office. The covered Chapter Clubs will receive a certificate of insurance upon payment. Meeting sites can be named as additional insured for no extra charge – a requirement of many meeting sites.
In order to obtain the insurance, the club must first be an NRG Chapter. An insurance application is to be filled out with club information that must include name, address, phone and email contact information for both a primary and secondary club contact. Contact the NRG office for details and application.
The NRG is required by law to not charge any additional fee for the insurance and must pass through all insurance payments from the Chapter Clubs to the insurance company.
