Commissions

AMICE’s work with its members is structured into three Commissions:

Each Commission has a series of working groups, project groups, task forces and forums in which AMICE members meet with the Secretariat to develop positions and activities.

By coming together, the AMICE community receives updates on relevant European Union legislative developments and contributes to the collective mutual sector response, through AMICE, to these developments.

Members have a crucial and active role in driving AMICE’s Commissions, helping the mutual/cooperative sector to speak with a single collective voice.

Commissions also help the flow of developments and information from the national level to EU level and give members the opportunity to meet peers and exchange expertise and best practice.

Commission I: Promotion

Promotion promotes the mutual/cooperative business model and strengthens the brand. It also organises the Congress which takes place every two years.

Commission II: Advocacy

Advocacy acts to ensure fair treatment of mutual/cooperatives insurers within the development of European policy and regulation, across many policy areas.

[ Close X ]

Commission III: Assistance

Assistance assists members, particularly small and medium-sized insurance undertakings, to be successful through knowledge and cooperation.
