RE: Insurance Information Institute Membership

As far as I know I.I.I. promotes the "do it yourself" home inventory, even providing free software.  I'm not saying that they are a bad organization or anything, but from what I've seen they probably are not a good partner at this point.  That may change at some point, perhaps when our industry gains some momentum or if they would be open to backing us (maybe through cooperation with NAHIP), but at present it seems like they may discourage people from using our services.

Has anyone attempted to gain associate membership with I.I.I.?  I have been in conversation recently about it. I believe if we are able to align ourselves with this industry association it would increase our credibility.  Just wondering if someone else may have tried.  If you did and were not succesful I would be interested in the "angle" you took. Below is a portion of an e-mail communication I've had.

"Also, members can boost their research capabilities by calling the Information Center to tap into its rich collection of online and print resources and professional expertise. Member companies can contact the Information Center for help with a project, statistics, copies of articles, data base searches or other assistance.

Traditional membership is available to property/casualty insurance companies and annual dues are based on direct written premiums, excluding accident, health, ocean marine and foreign premiums. Associate membership is available for insurance agencies and brokers and is based on gross revenue as follows: gross revenue below $5 million, the fee is $500.00; gross revenue of $5 million to $500 million, the fee is $100 per million in gross revenue; for gross revenue over $500 million, the fee is $50,000.  Let me know if you have any questions."
