Over the last two years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of chapter events held at venues that require additional insured status. In that time, we have created several resources for our clients to assist them in navigating the confusing world of contractual language, additional insureds, and the associated risk management implications. In addition, we have a specific individual in our department that expertly walks collegians and volunteers through the maze of issues surrounding the liability hurdles associated with contracts and events: Ruth Akers, our Assistant Account Manager.
Contract Review 101 is a presentation that we created to help better educate chapter members who are on the frontlines in these types of discussions. We have asked several chapter presidents and advisors to review the module and provide us with feedback. We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from this tool from those to whom we have introduced it, and we are anxious to get it in the hands of the masses.
