Due to COVID-19, business trade shows, meetings and conferences are no longer possible. This has meant businesses and organizations are having to learn how to organize a virtual conference, find new ways of spreading industry news and most importantly, hold ZOOM calls so people in the industry know what’s going on. This is why on Thursday, May 28, 2020, the Maryland Horse Council Business Network will be presenting a ZOOM Business Seminar on how the COVID-19 pandemic may be affecting your business insurance. This is similar to the networking events they hold annually but are obviously unable to do so this year. All business owners are welcome to attend but must RSVP before the meeting!

Date: Thursday, May 28, 2020
Time: 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

As Maryland begins to reopen, and you try to get your businesses back up to speed, how are COVID-related risks going to affect your business, and what can you expect from your business insurance? The client gets sick, and the trace-back leads to your business. What is your liability? Will your insurance cover you? An employee gets sick – what’s your liability? How will the insurance factor in? Do you have the appropriate insurance for if a member of staff passes away from this virus? If not, this website might be able to help. What about business interruption coverage? Is there a set of standards approved by the government that will shield me from liability when I reopen? Should I use a special COVID waiver/release form?

You need to know:
What CAN insurance do for you, and what can it NOT do for you?
What CAN and SHOULD you do to protect yourself from liability?

Our panel of legal and insurance experts will help you navigate these kinds of questions and more.

Usually an exclusive benefit for farm and business members, we are offering this seminar for FREE to ALL owners of equine-related businesses while we are still under the Governor’s COVID-19 Executive Orders.

In order for the meeting to be as informative and as effective as possible, so we encourage you, when you register, to submit questions (there will be a place to do so). This way, we can consolidate similar questions for maximum efficiency. At the end of the session, there will be an opportunity for more audience Q&A, as time allows.
