I am a Treasurer of my local branch, am I covered for any claims against me as a branch official as opposed to in my beekeeping activities?

The BBKA policy includes what is commonly referred to as ‘Trustees Liability’ cover for all officials of the BBKA, associations and branches affiliated to the BBKA. It does not matter whether your organisation is a charity or not for this cover.  The amount covered is £2,000,000, with no applicable excess. 

Are Area Associations and branches covered for Public Liability Insurance if we want to hire a hall for a beekeeping meeting/training or attend a public event such as a local show? 

Yes, up to a limit of £10 million.   Associations that are registered charities or CIOs, although legal entities in their own right, are still covered.
