Insurance for 2009-2010– Please Read Carefully

As of the Maryland (MD) PTA fall convention in November 2007, all PTAs are required to have general liability, bonding, and directors and officers liability insurance as negotiated by MD PTA Maryland PTA Bylaws, Article VII, Section 7:

All local PTAs shall have, at a minimum, bonding, liability, and directors and officers insurance through the Maryland PTA negotiated policy, a due date no later than October 1, 2008 as the date the state will cover existing local policies.

These provisions include the benefit of (1) consistency in that all PTAs are covered by the same policy with the same insurance company and (2) a group rate that reduces the cost to individual PTAs.

BB&T will once again be our insurance carrier for the 2009-2010 year. Invoices and statements will be mailed to the local units by May 30, 2009. Enrollment deadline is October 1, 2009.

BB&T publishes an insurance summary and loss prevention guide.  It refers to Red Light, Yellow Light and Green Light activities.  Red Light activities are prohibited.  Yellow Light refers to activities where certain conditions must be met and the local PTA must consult with the insurance broker in advance of engaging in any of those activities.  Green Light activities are approved.

The BB&T annual premium is $179 for each local PTA. Please include a late payment fee of $25 if payment is made after October 10, 2009.

So, EACH LOCAL PTA MUST PAY ITS INSURANCE PREMIUM TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  Enclosed is the application to fill out and attach with payment to BB&T.  An insurance summary and certificate of insurance will then be issued to each insured PTA.

Contact Teresa Willis, Office Administrator, at officeadministrator@mdpta.org or 410-760-6221 with questions regarding premium payments. BB&T can be reached directly through email at MDpta@BBandT.com.

URGENT: AFTER 6/1/09 THE OLD EMAIL ADDRESS WILL NOT WORK. PLEASE USE THE BB&T ADDRESS.
