Crafted & Created JUST FOR YOU!
Contact Janilee Bitsue

Much like the murals and unique designs you create, we have crafted and customized this exclusive insurance program for you as Members of IDAL to make sure we are giving you the protection you need at a fantastic price.  We work directly with the carrier and developed an insurance policy with enhanced options for you at a highly competitive price.  Our newest carrier partner, Crum & Forster Specialty Insurance Company (A.M. Best Rating A), has provided some additional classifications for operations such as Interior Decorating, which we are excited to announce!

Often times, decorative painters are classified as a painting contractor with other insurance carriers, which could have produced higher premiums as a result. It can be tough to find an insurance company who knows your industry and able to offer great coverage at an affordable cost. Founded in 2007, with 30+ years’ experience in specialty program management, Citadel Insurance Services has a unique ability to understand your business and insurance needs. We have carved out the specific operations in your industry to offer you a competitive insurance option offered exclusively to  IDAL members enrolled with a Professional or Business Level membership. 

IDAL is a great resource for artists and business people alike.  We have found that not only is it a community, but is truly a family that we have been privileged to be a part of.  We value our daily involvement with the members and the passion you have for your businesses. We look forward to seeing you at the next convention!
