2017-18 and 2018-19 U.S. District Governors:
 
We hope you have received and reviewed the insurance e-mailing sent to all U.S. Rotary Club officers on 31 July 2017 with information on the U.S. Rotary Club and District Liability Insurance Program (“Program”). The Program provides active U.S. Rotary clubs and districts with general liability (GL) and directors’ & officers’/employment practices liability (D&O/EPL) insurance.   
 
We encourage Districts to make the Program an included topic in newsletters or other communications with your clubs. Please let us know if you find the attached insurance presentation and handout helpful (July 2017 PETS Alliance “What Club Presidents Need to Know”).

In the June RI Board meeting, the Board “requested governors of Districts with US-based clubs to appoint a district insurance representative to help communicate to clubs about the Club and District Insurance Program.”

A District Insurance Representative (DIR) is a Rotarian with familiarity of, and an understanding of commercial liability insurance from working in the risk management field, as an insurance broker, a commercial lines underwriter, or as a claims adjuster. Some districts may already have a Rotarian unofficially serving in this position - we encourage continuity by appointing those Rotarians as DIRs.  This is now a formal position to be appointed in My Rotary.

A District Insurance Representative would: 
  • Be familiar with and direct Rotarians to the resources available to clubs and districts included under the U.S. Rotary Club and District Liability Insurance Program (website, insurance broker, Rotary's Risk Management Dept.); 
  • Use the District's web page to post current insurance information; 
  • Receive and read email communications from insurance@rotary.org and communicate same to clubs.
 
Please let us know if you have questions. 
Thank you, 
Rotary Risk Management
