WHO WE ARE
When a municipality joins the Comp Alliance, it gets the tools it needs to keep its employees safe and successfully manage its workers’ compensation costs.
OUR BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Comp Alliance is governed by a Board of Trustees that includes elected and appointed municipal officials and representatives from the municipal associations that represent Villages, Towns and Cities in New York. This balance ensures that the Board of Directors is always guided by the needs of its members small and large, and able to provide the best possible service to New York’s municipalities.
We want workers to be safe and productive. The type of training we get from Comp Alliance is outstanding. It’s the bonus stuff that makes them the best option for workers’ compensation like managing claims well and keeping employees safe.
It had previously been difficult to estimate our costs for workers’ compensation. Comp Alliance does not audit at year-end so now we know our costs upfront which has been helpful from a budget perspective. We can also reach out with specific questions and the staff is very supportive.
Safety is not a local government’s game, public service is. Workers’ compensation and safety is their game, and they help keep our employees safe to reduce our costs and save our taxpayers.
We are proud to partner with these organizations that hold us true to our mission by keeping us apprised of our members’ needs and providing excellent service.
