When planning an event, there may be times where we need to obtain a
Certificate of Insurance and have it on file 2 weeks prior to when
your event is scheduled.
Please consult Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois’ Safety
Activity Checkpoints At-A-Glance to determine if the facility
offering the activity your troop would like to do requires GSNI to
have a copy of the facility’s Certificate
of Insurance on file. Please consult our current Certificates of
Insurance List to check if we already have a Certificate of Insurance
on file for the organization you will be working with.
If the facility your troop is planning to use is listed, then you
only need to complete the necessary GSNI Permission Slips, the
facility’s waiver (if applicable), and the GSNI Troop Trip &
Overnight Approval Form (if your field trip is further than 60 miles
from your normal meeting space).
If the facility is not listed, the troop leader needs to request a
Certificate of Insurance from the facility. To do this, simply call
the facility and ask for a current Certificate of Insurance with GSNI
listed as a Certificate Holder, including the information below:
Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois
1886 Daimler Road
Rockford, IL 61112
The certificate can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Certificate of
Insurance” in the subject line, or U.S. mailed to the above address,
or faxed to 847-741-5667.
