Insurance for Members


NOTE: The Board of Directors RECOMMENDS that ALL practicing reflexologists carry Malpractice and General Liability Insurance. In order to participate in the Continuing Education Programme it is mandatory to carry such insurance.

Insurance—A Benefit of Membership

RAC is pleased to continue its relationship with insurance broker Lackner McLennan.

Lackner McLennan has designed a Professional Liability and General Commercial program for RAC members that we believe stacks up favorably in the marketplace. They were able, recently, to reduce the annual cost to just $225 plus tax. Other policies are also available.

It ís every member's choice as to which insurance is best.

For more information contact Lackner McLennan at 519.579.3330 or 800.265.2625 or visit www.lacknermclennan.com

For a limited time, RAC members can apply online.



Professional Membership—Membership For Qualified Certified Reflexologists

RAC offers membership to Professional Reflexologists who have trained in other schools and countries, where the hours and course materials are equivalent to our own.

This enables us to gain a stronger voice as we open the door to more qualified members to join Canada's oldest and ONLY national Reflexology Association!

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FOR PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIP WHERE CERTIFICATION HAS BEEN ACHIEVED THROUGH A CORRESPONDENCE COURSE
