The California Square Dance Council, Inc. ("Council") and the dancers of its member
Associations/Federations ("Affiliates") are members of the United Square
Dancers of America, Inc. ("USDA"). USDA negotiates two insurance policies, one is Liability Insurance and the other is Accident Medical Insurance, for the Affiliates, clubs, and dancers. Each policy is group coverage and is provided to all dancers and clubs who belong to an Affiliate of USDA.
Documents describing these policies:
Any questions concerning the policies should be directed to the Council Insurance Co-Director Carolyn Ulrich <email@example.com>. If she cannot answer the questions, she will contact the USDA Insurance Coordinator.
The insurance company establishes the cost per dancer for insurance. Council and each Affiliate may increase the fee to cover administrative costs. Monies collected for insurance MUST be designated for that use only.
Affiliates and clubs need to be covered by insurance to provide protection for their dancers. Almost all of the facility contracts entered into require some type of liability insurance coverage. This information must be submitted to your Association's Insurance Chairman each year. Downloadable forms are listed in the "Forms" section below.
Key Changes for 20191. You no longer have to list specific dates and rooms on your Request for Certificate. You are automatically covered for the entire year for the entire facility.
2. There is now a space on some forms for your club's 2019 USDA number. This number can be found in the file name of the electronic copy of your 2019 insurance certificate (e.g. USDA410 Cowtown Singles) or in the top left line of your hard copy insurance certificate from Markel (e.g. Certificate Number: USDA 410).
3. All Insurance forms, handbooks, brochures, and FAQs are now posted on the Counil website (squaredance.org).
