Why Do Field/Facility Owners Require To Be Named On Sports Insurance Policies?
Field / facility owners such as recreation departments, school districts, schools, and municipalities often allow outside user groups to use their premises under a lease or permit. These relationships are beneficial to all parties involved. However, field / facility owners expose themselves and their insurance carriers to liability arising from injuries that may occur on the premises arising out of the lease or permit. This is true even though the injury may be due to the 100% negligence of the outside user group.

Field / facility owners are almost always shot gunned into these lawsuits as a deep pocket even if they are 0% at fault. The defense costs and possibility of settlement or adverse jury verdict can be very expensive. This can result in unbudgeted out of pocket expenses (in event of self insurance or large deductible insurance program) or in a large loss that is paid by their insurance carrier. When these losses are paid by insurance carriers, such insurance carriers may non renew or may ask for large rate increases. Therefore, field / facility owners have a lot to lose when they make their premises available to outside user groups.

AFA Membership gives you access to general liability insurance!!!

Social media has turned the world of recruiting and career placement on its head. LinkedIn profiles are the new resumes; social networks are the new databases. Hiring and firing decisions are frequently made on the basis of Facebook photos; job openings are posted and spread through personal networks on Twitter; references and recommendations are made through LinkedIn.
Taken together, these can provide a much richer portrait of who you are and your potential value to an organization. Eighty percent of jobs are never advertised, but are filled through networking – and as social media booms, an increasing number of those are found through social media websites.
