Membership: Reasons to become a member of ICMIF and how to apply

The cooperative and mutual insurance sector is the fastest growing part of the global insurance sector. ICMIF represents over 230 of the leading cooperative and mutual insurers from more than 70 countries.

Leveraging their mutual/cooperative values and unique governance arrangements, ICMIF members are the fastest growing part of the insurance sector. Over the last seven years ICMIF’s current members organizations have grown by 37% in premium terms, therefore growing faster than the global insurance market (14%) and faster than the overall mutual/cooperative market (30%).

If you wish to join the Federation and this leading group of member organizations: please contact Shaun Tarbuck, Chief Executive, ICMIF.

Once an application for membership has been received this will be reviewed and in most cases approved quickly by the ICMIF Executive Committee which meets regularly. Their decision is then further endorsed by the ICMIF Board of Directors at its annual meeting.

If and when membership of the Federation is granted, this will also provide automatic membership of the appropriate regional association. There are two exceptions to this, Europe and Africa, please see below for more detail on these areas and regional activities.

ICMIF is primarily funded through its membership fees but may also gain an income from some additional services, such as conferences and training for which a delegate fee is sometimes charged to members.
