Greetings Queen Mother
I wish to
bring to your attention the fact that we have an insurance program in effect for
all red hat chapters other than those in Quebec, Labrador and Newfoundland (due
to their laws for insurance differ form ours) and for those who are
presently in the program, to advise you of some significant
changes made this month.
It is most unfortunate but there have been law suits brought against Queen
Mothers, their chapters and some members of their chapters, in both Canada and
the USA. Their have also been some red hatters who have unfortunately been in
recent automobile accidents. We are, unfortunately, becoming a more litigious
agent and I have worked very hard with the underwriters to revise our current
insurance program and as a result we have recently undergone some major
changes in the policies with regard to structure and rates.
I wanted to pass this new information on to you as soon as possible so that when
setting your chapters membership fees you can add in the cost of the insurance.
to help those lucky enough to be Snowbirds,
by offering the option of sending in your information early with a post-dated
I am very
pleased with the new
lower rate which at 66
cents/month ($8/yr per member) is affordable to all and very inexpensive for the
peace of mind it brings. To purchase this same coverage on your own as an
addition to your homeowners policy would cost in excess of $750.00 so we’ve
managed to get you an excellent rate!
there is no longer a $10
up front and new chapters are now able to join
the program at any time of the year.
require the legal names of all members as every
member is listed as an “insured”
on your policy.
revised our processing methods too and you should receive your receipt
and confirmation of
coverage as soon as your payment has been received.
If you would
like information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
