We Need You!

Are you knowledgeable about liability insurance and the insurance industry?

The FMCBC is seeking members with an interest in liability insurance and knowledge about the insurance industry to join the Risk Management Committee.

The Risk Management Committee is responsible for the FMCBC’s general comprehensive liability group insurance offered to member clubs. The comprehensive liability insurance is important as it allows clubs to schedule trips and host club events, protects clubs, trip organizers and trip participants in the event of an accident on a club trip or club event and ensures members can continue to access some lands (i.e., Private Managed Forest Lands on Vancouver Island).

The FMCBC’s comprehensive liability group insurance must take into consideration the wide variety of outdoor recreation activities offered by our clubs, the recommended coverage for both general comprehensive liability and Directors and Officers insurance and the minimum coverage requirements to access and recreate on private managed forest lands.

With significant increases in insurance premiums for many organizations last year (an increase of 60% for the FMCBC!), the FMCBC needs to assess our insurance requirements and options to ensure the best coverage and value for our member clubs for the 23/24 insurance year.

We are seeking volunteers with a background in insurance to help us with this process. The majority of Committee meetings will be via videoconference.

To volunteer please contact paula.mcgahon@gmail.com.
