NARI LIABILITY INSURANCE PROGRAM
NARI and BISA have partnered together to offer active NARI members the absolute best liability policy available. The NARI Business Liability Insurance Program takes into consideration that while virtually all members have standard general liability policies, most did not have coverage for pollution including exposures such as asbestos, lead, and mold; nor did they have coverage for their design-build professional liability exposure. This program is rolling out in certain states on a monthly basis with coverage offered in all states by the end of 2017. Please verify with HQ or your chapter that it is currently offered in your state. http://nariinsurance.com/index/
