|None of the Above?|
Virtually all eligible companies should fit into one of the three main categories above: Manufacturer, Distributor, or Vendor. Other types of companies or consultants may apply for ICMG membership, subject to approval on a case by case basis by the ICMG Membership Chair.
Criteria that will be considered include whether (a) you play a role in the manufacture, distribution, servicing or business process of insurance products
AND (b) if you sell a product or service to an insurance company it must involve a continuous post-sale relationship
, not be an interaction completed by the sale. Examples of eligible companies in this category are insurance-related consultants and online insurance sales technology partners. To apply for membership in this "Other" category, request a call from the Membership Committee or submit the application form linked below, and ICMG will determine if you are eligible.
Examples of companies that are not eligible for ICMG membership include general technology providers, promotional firms, hotels/resorts and sales incentive planners. Companies that sell to insurance companies but do not have a core focus on the insurance industry are not eligible for membership. Nonmember companies may exhibit at ICMG's Annual Meeting at the nonmember rate.
Insurance industry publications and associations may inquire about reciprocal "liaison" type memberships by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
