The Royal Historical Society of Victoria offers insurance to support Affiliated Historical Societies. Only RHSV members can join the Group Insurance Scheme. To learn more about membership click here.

2021 – 2022 Insurance

The 2021 – 2022 scheme will begin on 1 April 2021. In late January 2021 we are sending surveys to all existing scheme members and others on our database – the responses to these surveys will ascertain the premiums. If you would like to be included or get a quote to join the scheme in the coming year please contact Rebecca Toohey on 03 9326 9288 |

Once the insurance companies have seen all the responses to the surveys, they calculate our premiums for 2021-2022. The RHSV then sends invoices to all those societies taking part in the Group Insurance Scheme and to those societies who, at this stage, merely, want a quote. This is planned to take place in early March for payment by 1 April 2021.

2020 – 2021 Insurance

Our insurance ‘year’ runs from 4pm 1 April to 4pm of the following 1 April.

There are 4 different categories of insurance offered:

  • Public Liability Public liability this year has absorbed property owners’ liability which in past years was a separate policy. Certificates of Currency will be issued once the premium is paid.
  • Association Liability .Provides protection to the association against legal liability which it may incur through the conduct of its activities or the provision of services.
  • Voluntary Workers Insurance provides capital and weekly benefits for voluntary workers (and members) injured whilst engaged in voluntary work on behalf of the insured, including commuting to and from as defined in the policy wording. (Similar to Workcover)
  • Assets insurance is the only variable premium as this premium is based on the value and location of the assets you wish to insure.

Please email the RHSV to obtain a quote based on  the latest premiums for the Group Insurance Scheme.

This year we have changed the way we collect information and societies wishing to join the group insurance scheme are required to complete this online questionnaire.

Based on this questionnaire the RHSV will issue an invoice for the premiums for the requested insurances.

The full 2020-21 policy can be read here.
