General Liability Insurance

MTNA is very pleased to offer general liability insurance coverage for every MTNA-affiliated State and Local Association. Every State and Local Association is covered under this policy for an unlimited number of events at no cost to any individual association. MTNA has agreed to pay the cost of this premium. This insurance is not available to individuals.

1. What does this mean for my association?

If your association is sponsoring an event (conference, competition, festival, workshop, etc.), your association is insured against claims arising from bodily injury and property damage that might occur at this event.

NOTE: Coverage is for associations only. Individual members of associations are not covered under this policy.

2. What if my association already has this coverage?

If you have coverage, your association must make the decision whether or not to drop that coverage. The MTNA insurance agent will examine your policy and compare its coverage's to the MTNA policy. Regardless of your decision, you still are covered under the MTNA policy. As with all insurance, double coverage does not imply double payment for a claim. Both insurance companies would share the payment.

3. What if my association is asked to provide proof of this coverage by the facility or institution where we are holding the event?

In that case, you must complete a Request for Certificate of Insurance form. Once completed, the form may be submitted online or printed and mailed to: MTNA, General Liability Insurance , 441 Vine Street, Suite 3100, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45202-3004. This form will then be forwarded to the insurance agent who will prepare the Certificate of Insurance and send it directly to the facility or institution, or to the designated association member. The Request for Certificate of Insurance form may be copied for multiple use.

4. What other coverage is included in this policy?

Local associations are covered for the commercial general liability as described in the following Summary of Coverage (No. 3. In addition, state associations have coverage against property loss/damage (property owned by the state association), property loss/damage (property owned, rented, leased or borrowed at an event site), bodily injury and property damage resulting from an accident in a non-owned or hired automobile and loss of association funds due to dishonesty of the state treasurer.

This information is for your association records. You will not receive a copy of the policy, which will remain at MTNA National Headquarters. Please remember that this coverage may be requested for an unlimited number of events. Every association, both state and local, has a limit of $1,000,000 per occurrence. In addition, MTNA provides an additional $2,000,000 per occurrence of umbrella insurance, for a total per occurrence of $3,000,000 in coverage. If you need a Certificate of Insurance for more than one facility or institution in one year, these certificates will be sent to you upon request.
