Promoting the mutual and cooperative business model and strengthening its brand
AMICE promotes the mutual business model in Europe in order to strengthen its recognition. With the aim of increasing the visibility and outreach of AMICE and of the mutual & cooperative brand, the association set up Commission I on Promotion with three working groups:
- Promoting Mutual and Cooperative Values
AMICE holds a Congress biennially to draw attention to the sector and to address issues of importance to its members. Held in conjunction with the association's General Meeting, the event provides opportunities for members and others to meet and exchange views.
As well as being the European regional association of the global federation for the mutual and cooperative insurance sector, ICMIF, AMICE also cooperates with other sectoral organisations such as AIM or NAMIC to promote mutual and cooperative values across the world.
Creating opportunities and addressing challenges for mutual and cooperative insurers
AMICE monitors European legislative initiatives which could have a specific impact on mutual/cooperative insurance and actively participates in many relevant European forum such as the EIOPA Stakeholder Group or EFRAG.
AMICE’s work with and for its membership in the advocacy field is mainly channeled through the
Commission II - Advocacy working groups:
Enabling AMICE members and in particular small and medium-sized insurance undertakings to be successful
AMICE provides a platform for mutual and cooperative insurers of all sizes to combine resource and expertise, exchange experiences across national borders and discuss key issues and concerns relating to planned legislative and regulatory changes and developments.
AMICE keeps its membership informed of issues affecting them through a range of dedicated services provided via the AMICE website, a regular newsletter and events. This work is supported by the Communications working group.
Communication III - Assistance's working groups organise regular seminars, provide the ideal venue for members to exchange knowledge and experience on topics which are of importance to their day-to-day insurance business.
