Alliances and Associations serve their membership base by advocating for funding, compiling and sharing best practice, and supporting start up organizations. Their mission is to share resources to maximize efficiency of their specialized member base. Conservation United has developed the “Service United” branch to serves as a resource to any alliance or association seeking consistency, efficiency, and premium discounts for its membership. Our very model is based on aggregating common risks and exposures among multiple organizations with similar activities and risk profiles. Working with alliances is not merely a matter of economy of scale or encouraging bulk pricing discounts. The membership of alliances and associations also provides ideal opportunity to gather loss data across dozens or even hundreds of like organizations in order to provide insurance carriers with a depth of actuarial data to make fully informed decisions. When carriers are fully informed, bias and uncertainty is eliminated from the equation. Carriers who might not understand an industry well enough to accept one organization’s clean loss history as representative rather than as an outcome of good luck will respond positively to a wide view of performance of dozens of similar organizations with continuity of exposures. Working through an alliance or association to develop insurance programs supplemented by risk management solutions creates the consistency that helps insurance carriers understand the industry and set premium at a rate reflective of confidence and comfort in your model. Conservation United specializes in developing tailored insurance programs that associations and alliances promote to your membership.
