Message From The President
Because NYIA’s focus is solely New York, we are able to provide our members with timely and relevant information on state legislation and regulation. In addition, our large membership enables us to offer these services at a dues rate that provides great value to national as well as regional companies that view New York as a primary market.
NYIA is the oldest state property/casualty insurance trade association in the nation, tracing its roots back to 1882. The new NYIA was formed in 1997 by the unification of the New York Insurance Alliance and the New York State Insurance Association. As the industry changed, stocks, mutuals and cooperatives had far more issues in common than they did differences. It became apparent that New York’s property/casualty insurance industry would be best served by a single voice for the New York industry.
That voice is now NYIA.
If you are not yet a NYIA member, I encourage you to browse the public areas of our site. We’ll be happy to send you samples of the information available in the Members Only section.
Ellen Melchionni, CAE
