This month’s article focuses on Insurance for Small Businesses. I’m going to push that thought out a little further and say that Insurance is also very important for non-profit organizations.

As a nonprofit ourselves, I truly saw no need for our organization to carry a lot of insurance and felt (to be honest) that the cost was a burden to our small chamber’s budget. I can say that over the past ten years, we have had to call on our insurance a few times. We were glad that we had a local agent that could take our call, listen, and offer the best solution when we were in need.

I know this topic isn’t as exciting as some other newsletter topics, but I feel the article attached really offers insight as to why it is important to carry the right insurance. The article starts with the basics and goes into a little more detail.

The Little Miami River Chamber Alliance works with many different types of carriers. A few of our main commercial carriers are Bush Re Shea, Saxon Financial, State Farm-Nikki Shah, Wallace Insurance, Goosehead Insurance-Joni Wagner, Valerie Long & Ricky Heflin: Shelter Insurance, and Cincinnati Business and Family Insurance. Just to name a few!

Please don’t leave your business vulnerable or yourself by not obtaining the right insurance. I’m happy to connect you to the agents above. Text or email me and I’m happy to get you set up.

Have a great holiday season!
