Webinars

Below is a list of our upcoming webinars. Be sure to check back for new webinars.

Association Liability Product Training

Join us on the 29th of October for our webinar on our new product, Association Liability.

Did you know that there are over 57,000 registered charities and not-for-profits in Australia who are registered with the Australian Charities and not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). Yet, according to statistics released by APRA, very few of these seem to buy Association Liability insurance. The management exposures of running an association, not-for-profit or charity are comparable to those of a private company, yet Association Liability insurance is not widely purchased. But there is no reason why these uninsured exposures should remain that way.

ProRisk’s Association Liability Policy is specifically designed to cover the management exposures of a small to medium sized association, not-for-profit or charity. When you think about the risks of doing business in Australia or New Zealand, Association Liability Insurance really should be a must buy.

During this webinar, you’ll hear from the product and platform designers on this unique, market leading wording. You’ll learn more about the key exposures and how you can structure an Association Liability policy to suit your client’s needs.
