Professional Liability Insurance (PLI)
By the terms of our comprehensive PLI policy, there are no specific exclusions relating to transmission of a virus or disease for insured sonographers during the delivery of their professional services, except for circumstances involving alleged or actual abuse. However, this would not be the case if a sonographer were proven to be negligent. In this pandemic scenario, this might consist of a failure to sanitize properly resulting in the transmission of a virus, continuing to work while feeling unwell and transmitting the virus, or failing to self-isolate following travel or exposure to the virus. The onus to prove negligence is placed on those making a complaint. Questions may be sent to email@example.com .
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Our AGM is taking place on June 20, 2020 at Noon, Eastern Time. All supporting information including the Agenda, Minutes of the 2019 AGM, the 2019 Audited Financial Statements (in review) and other supporting documents have been made available on the 2020 Annual General Meeting page. Registration is now open for both the AGM and FREE (for members) Learning Activities.
