Insurance for events - How does it work? 

Events are the lifeblood of the club. We want Organisers to enjoy running safe events in the knowledge that support is there when its needed. 

Liability insurance helps to ensure that event organisers and their volunteers are covered against claims from third parties if an incident happens during an event.

What is event insurance?

For the protection of participants and all those involved in the management of registered and insured events, the Australian Motorist Association and the Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA) provides through its public liability insurance policy, an indemnity, limited to $20,000,000 for legal liabilities arising from claims made against an event organiser, official or participant* that involves either bodily injury or property damage to a third party.

All events promoted under the auspices of the AMA are provided with this cover upon receipt of a properly completed online event registration form by officials that are authorised to submit events.

In the unlikely event that a claim is directed at an event official ‘as an individual', rather than as a representative of an event, the AMA also provides to that individual the benefit of ‘Directors & Officers Liability' insurance which provides indemnity against ‘wrongful acts'** committed by ‘individuals' acting on behalf of an event held under the auspices of the AMA.


* Individual cover of death and disablement is provided as an option for persons whilst participating in AMA sanctioned events. Participants have the choice of $5k death/ $25k disablemment or $25k death/ $25k disablemment or $50k death/ $50k disablemment on a per event basis, which must be taken out at the commencement of membership.

** ‘Wrongful act' shall mean any actual or alleged breach of trust, breach of duty, neglect, error, misstatement, misleading statement, omission, breach of warranty of authority or other act wrongfully committed or attempted by the Official in the course of performing his duties as an Official.
