Letter to Exhibitors:
Winona read the letter to exhibitors. Because of the National Insurance Policy for all IHC
Chapters, to exhibit at our Summer Show you must be an IHC member. After the letter was
read, Mr. Forrester, the IHC National Attorney, did a presentation about the insurance coverage
for all IHC Chapters. The presentation was very informative and covered all aspects of the
insurance clauses. The National Policy covers all IHC members at all IHC sanctioned events It
was “stressed” that only IHC members at club sanctioned events were covered.
Mr. Forrester also did a presentation about a Collector’s Policy and how it differed from farm
policies and homeowner policies.
After these presentations , there was discussion about the letter to exhibitors. A motion was
made to send the letter to exhibitors that registered at last year’s Show but were not members
of IHC. It was seconded and approved.
The club discussed how to address people that came to the Show and wanted to exhibit but
had not received the letter concerning insurance regulations The Club decided that this would
be handled at the Registration Table.
As there was no other business, a motion was made to adjourn. It was seconded and
