In this ever-changing environment, the HOBGI would like to provide some guidance for you as you begin to re-plan and go forward with many of your meetings or events. We all are concerned about the welfare and safety of our members and any of their guests that will be attending meetings or events in the next several months but unfortunately we cannot guarantee anyone’s safety or protection from contracting the virus.
Right now every Country, State and Province have different re-integration plans, rules and guidelines. Grand Nest is encouraging every Pond to think about re-starting, however, it is essential that any Pond that is planning, scheduling or hosting events MUST follow the guidelines that your State or Province have in place on the date of said event/meeting. You MUST also send each attendee the State or Provincial guidelines in place at that time, as well as the venue guidelines in advance of the meeting, in addition to having them posted clearly at your event/meeting. This protocol will remain in effect for your Pond as long as restrictions continue to exist in your location. All HOBGI Regional events are postponed until further notice unless you are able to hold them virtually.
PLEASE NOTE: the HOBGI Commercial General Liability policy has an endorsement to the policy that clearly states that there is NOT any coverage for COVID -19 exposures resulting from a meeting/event we are hosting.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your MLGG, Dan Rich at DRICH@@travelers.com.
PLAN SAFE, STAY SAFE & STAY HEALTHY!
