Affiliate Membership for Businesses


An Affiliate membership is intended for companies that are attuned to the needs and purposes of higher education risk management professionals. Examples include insurance companies, brokerages, law firms, and consultants.

"Affiliate Level 4" memberships include one Voting Member and up to three (3) other members. "Affiliate Level 1" memberships are for small businesses with a yearly higher-education revenue less than $250,000 and include one Voting Member.

Dues for those joining after January 1 will be prorated based on the number of days remaining in the year.

Unique Conference Experience

We encourage you to enjoy the full range of our programming by attending workshops, conference sessions, and special events. URMIA does not host an exhibit hall, so you are free to network and experience our events alongside other attendees.

Here's what an institution's Risk Manager said about a recent conference experience:

  • "I like the way Affiliates have a presence at the conference but it's not all about big flashy vendor booths. It's always interesting to interact with Affiliates in educational sessions instead of vendor booths - it feels like a more genuine experience."

Sponsorship Opportunities

Businesses can communicate their message, services, and products to a wide audience of higher education risk management professionals through our sponsorship program.
