Underwriters Association


Underwriters Association
An industry group that is dedicated to maintaining professional standards and providing continuing education for underwriters in a specific field. An underwriters association is generally a non-profit body that may be either regional or national in scope. The services offered by most underwriters associations also include career development and networking opportunities.

Apart from offering its members a number of services, including advance designation programs, online learning, professional conferences, publications and business development tools, underwriters associations often conduct advocacy efforts at the state and federal government levels to advance the interests of health insurance professionals and promote affordable private health insurance solutions.
