Provides cover for claims made directly against individuals at an IGA affiliated club e.g. officer, committee member, director and/or trustee for alleged wrongful acts in connection with the club affairs.
Alongside the Liability insurance we have arranged cover for members if they are accidentally injured when participating in a sanctioned activity or event, or whilst taking part in a club organised training activity. The covers also apply during a club organised social event.
