On Thursday, January 23, we hosted an online webinar regarding a proposed insurance package. You can view the webinar here.
Here is a quick update into the progress of the package.
Summary to date: We are looking into a package insurance policy which would apply for all certified professionals. We acknowledge that often for our members obtaining insurance has been time consuming, expensive and challenging and so we have made it a priority to investigate a way to alleviate these issues.
Currently, we have a proposed package for our members and as discussed in the webinar our insurance contact is pursuing other options to obtain a package to meet all the needs of our members.
We welcome input from our C-NRPP Professionals. Please continue to provide us with your input through the C-NRPP Facebook page, Online Survey or email (email@example.com).
(Note: the C-NRPP Facebook group is a closed discussion available for C-NRPP professionals, if you are certified please send a request and you will be added).
The CARST Board discussed next steps at their February 11 board meeting. To date, the board is deciding between a mandatory, all inclusive type package which would be quite cost effective and a group policy which would allow members to opt out but would not provide the same level of pricing.
A major need to date is the need to increase input from members. Moving to a mandatory program would need agreement from a significant number of members. In addition, the members who have provided input have put forward some useful suggestions to the program and coverage.
We are waiting for updated information from the insurance representative and then we will put forward new communication to the members requesting feedback. We will update this page as well as email out communication once received.
