These risk managers represent MMRMA when discussing coverage and costs, act as liaisons between MMRMA and its members, and present annual renewal questionnaires and renewal proposals to current members.
Defense counsel for MMRMA members is provided by several Michigan law firms with expertise in municipal risk exposure. These firms have litigation experience in all areas of local government operations.
MMRMA also retains general counsel to provide legal advice to the Board of Directors and the Executive Director on matters that directly affect the organization.
