Special Events Insurance Requirements
Many Federation delegates have raised concerns regarding Special Event Insurance and the Executive Committee has looked into this issue. Executive Committee Chair, Jim Lantelme, and President James Schroll met with County staff about this issue and can provide some clarification regarding when community organizations need to obtain Special Event Insurance. See Special Events Insurance Requirements which explains the instances in which organizations would need to obtain insurance to cover their proposed event. Additionally, SpecEvents Checklist provides guidelines which will help you identify many of the basic requirements for your event. You may also find a list of resources for securing one-time Special Event Liability coverage on p 18 of this PDF [47 KiB].
