Industry Voice

We have in place a committee structure through which our Affiliate Members can increasingly participate in the planning, development, marketing, and administering of a variety of PLRB educational programs, particularly the networking aspects of most importance to Affiliates. These committees give our Affiliates a significant voice in the delivery of PLRB's educational services and thus a substantial influence in the claims industry. If you would like to participate and lend your voice and expertise to shaping our industry services, please contact PLRB's corporate Secretary, Elizabeth Sterne esterne@plrb.org, 630-724-2217.


The great value of trade associations is found in their promotion of ideas and strategies for the success of their members. From the diverse and imaginative curriculum of the Claims Conference, Regional Adjuster Conferences, and Large Loss Conference, to the solid legal research and analysis of our highly regarded legal staff, or our in-depth catastrophe tracking and reporting, the PLRB and its 1,300-plus insurer and Affiliate Members are working together to create and implement the solutions that will shape our industry's future.

Take advantage of the opportunities provided to your company by the PLRB Affiliate Member Program, not only as a means to directly market your company, but also for the value of exclusive high-quality information and education, the power of sharing ideas with industry thought leaders, and the most effective relationship-building network in the industry.
