The New York State Municipal Workers’ Compensation Alliance (Comp Alliance) is pleased to announce a special Member Loyalty Award.
In appreciation of its members that have stood by the Comp Alliance and contributed to its success, the Comp Alliance will distribute a portion of its surplus to members. This one-time monetary award reflects a recognition by the Board of Trustees of fiscal challenges faced by municipalities and provides a tangible benefit of municipal cooperation by returning funds to local governments and schools for the betterment of their communities.
The Comp Alliance will begin distribution of these awards at its 25th Anniversary Leadership Symposium to be held at West Point on October 11, 2019. All participating program members are invited to attend this monumental event to receive their award! Registration is limited, so please reserve your spot by registering for the Leadership Symposium.
The Comp Alliance is a not-for-profit workers’ compensation group self-insurance program for municipalities and school districts, with a focus on improving workplace safety and providing stable funding for its members. When the Alliance was formed in the early 1990s, municipalities in New York struggled to annually budget for unpredictable workers’ compensation costs. The Comp Alliance offers its members budgetary stability and the opportunity to achieve significant savings by sharing the costs of workers’ compensation insurance. Today, the Comp Alliance has nearly 300 members, $47 million in contributions and more than $18 million surplus to help maintain long-term financial stability.
With sponsorship and oversight by the Association of Towns of the State of New York and the New York State Conference of Mayors, the Comp Alliance’s mission remains the same as it was 25 years ago —ensuring members are able to meet their long-term workers’ compensation liabilities while maintaining stable funding contributions.
For more information on the Member Loyalty Award Program or the 25th Anniversary Leadership Symposium, please contact a Comp Alliance Marketing Manager or your insurance broker. You can also visit the Comp Alliance on Twitter and Facebook for additional program enhancements and announcements.
We are pleased to inform you that 2019 marks the 25th Anniversary of the New York State Municipal Workers’ Compensation Alliance (Comp Alliance). What began 25 years ago with a vision by the Association of Towns of the State of New York and the commitment of two municipalities has grown into a premier shared-service model that serves 280 municipalities. The dedication of our members to the mission and philosophy of the Comp Alliance is the foundation of its success.
As a sign of appreciation to our members, we are sending each member a steel cabinet 25th Anniversary first aid kit.
In the early 1990s, municipalities in New York struggled to budget for the continual increase in workers’ compensation costs. The Comp Alliance offered budgetary stability and the opportunity to achieve significant savings through sharing the costs of workers’ compensation insurance. By the end of its first year, it had seven members and approximately $250,000 in contributions. Today, the Comp Alliance has 280 members, $47 million in contributions and an $18 million surplus to help maintain long-term financial stability. With sponsorship and oversight by the Association of Towns of the State of New York and the New York State Conference of Mayors, the Comp Alliance’s mission remains the same as it was twenty-five years ago—ensuring members are able to meet their long-term workers’ compensation liabilities while maintaining stable funding contributions.
The Comp Alliance provides our members with the resources to keep employees safe and successfully manage their workers’ compensation costs. In-house, professional risk managers are located throughout the state and available to assist our members. Dedicated claims professionals work with members to ensure that claims are handled expeditiously to achieve a safe and healthy return to work for injured employees. Equipped with these resources, Comp Alliance members are able to regain control of their workers’ compensation costs.
Our 25th anniversary first aid kit will be shipped soon, and we hope all members will display it prominently. We are proud of the Comp Alliance’s success over the past 25 years and the future looks even brighter.
