The Benefits of Pool Membership

We understand that the subject of risk pooling insurance coverage is complicated and that explaining it can be challenging. So, in response to requests from our member fairs for resources that could assist them in explaining to their board members how risk pooling works and the numerous benefits of CFSA membership beyond insurance coverage, we developed a packet of information that distills down the important details into language that allows for easier comprehension.

The first document is a detailed explanation of CFSA’s history, general liability risk
pooling operations, and the benefits of pool membership. In addition, there  are four attachments with specific information about general liability coverage and our risk control services, plus a third attachment with clarifications on misperceptions of CFSA’s programs. The fourth document is a one-page general liability membership benefit sheet – sort of an executive summary in an abridged format that may be preferred by your fair board.

This packet of information is intended as a handy general reference for your
convenience. The CFSA General Liability Memorandum of Coverage (MOC)  should be used to determine the precise coverages, conditions, limitations and definitions for the CFSA
General Liability Program. The General Liability Memorandum of Coverage can be
found in your Red Book.
