    Where can I find out (or who should I contact) what the AAW liability insurance for a club covers?

    I believe it is supposed to cover AAW members who are performing demonstrations, either as a demonstrator, or as a watcher, but have been told that it would not cover a non-AAW member who might have gotten during an AAW club sponsored event.

    A club that I belong to has lost its meeting space and keeps getting questions from possible spaceholders about exactly what our liability insurance consists of.

    Ed,

    Thanks for the link.

    It would seem logical then for our club to purchase a separate liability policy for our non-AAW members.

    Or can one assume (always a dangerous word) that a non-AAW club member, or visitor, to a club sanctioned event, if damaged, can sue the club which is then covered by its AAW policy?

    The master of answering hypotheticals like that is John Hill, the AAW's Insurance Committee chair.

    Bernie,
    Might be cheaper to buy them AAW memberships.

    most club restrict turning activities to AAW members.

    Demonstrations are almost always restricted to AAW members.

    Things like workshop participation is a tough call. Often the new folks are not yet AAW members.
    and participation in a workshop is how they get interested in going on.

    Ed,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have sent my question to John Hill.
