Founded in 1967, the IRUA today consists of over 30 member companies engaged in the assumption, placement or purchase of property/casualty treaty reinsurance. In October of 1993, the IRUA expanded its membership from solely reinsurance underwriters to include reinsurance intermediaries. In September 2002, the IRUA expanded its membership further to include ceding company reinsurance departments. Presently, intermediaries comprise approximately 25% of the membership. While all IRU members primarily operate in the U.S. reinsurance market, we now have members from the London, European and Bermuda markets as well.
Membership in the IRUA comes with an abundance of benefits which include: Discounts to Conferences/Seminars & Workshops; Eligibility for IRUA's Scholar Program; Board of Director Participation; Committee participation, Company Recognition, IRUA's Next Generation Leadership programs and an array of networking opportunities.
