We have this but I don’t know the details. It is “volunteer insurance” and 
covers any resident while doing community work.

We also learned last spring that our insurance cost could soon triple — an 
industry increase I think.

But what I signed on to ask is have you consulted a lawyer. I wouldn’t take it 
for granted that the insurance agent understands all the legalities since 
expectations and management in cohousing isn’t like most condos.
