General Insurance Information: You must be a member of NFMC/MFMC in good standing to obtain insurance. Cost per event is $17. MFMC covers these costs as part of your state membership. Any events registered after the designated deadline will be $18 per event. Cost per event having consecutive days is $20. An event on a single day but a multiple sites costs $17 per site. No requests will be processed without accurate address and date of event. If an event requires a rider of an additional insured, give the exact language required. Any changes requested after a certificate is issued will result in a $5 change fee. If you need to change an event date, and wait to inform NFMC until the original date has passed you will owe another full event fee. There is NO credit in that situation. A certificate verifying insurance coverage is issued only to an event that requests it. Certificates will be sent to the State Liability Chairman only – (and then she will forward them to your site). Coverage is not guaranteed until payment is received and processed by the NFMC Headquarters. This insurance does not cover damage to or theft of musical instruments.
