What is Club Management and Professional Liability Insurance?

When you give your time an energy to a club, you want to make certain you are not risking your personal or the organisation’s financial security. That’s why you need a Management and Professional insurance policy. It provides protection for you and the organisation in the event of legal action.

The insurance addresses exposures/wrongdoings clubs and associations face everyday, including; discrimination, harassments, wrongful termination, inefficient administration or supervision, libel and slander, misrepresentations and employee theft.

Who Is Covered
All incorporated hockey clubs, affiliations and associations of each State and Territory.
Dont't forget
Management & Professional Liability insurance is ONLY available to incorporated entities! If your club is not incorporated, individual committee members run the risk of exposing their home, car and financial assets.
Hot Tip...
It is strongly recommended that you implement a programme to ensure that all claims are Identified and notified immediately and within the policy period to avoid the possibility of a claim being denied.
