On January 27, 2016 the Comp Alliance kicked off its 2016 regional safety training series at the Town of Monroe. This training seminar was attended by more than 90 local officials representing 10 of our members, and provided training on five state mandated safety topics that all municipal officials and staff are required to receive.

Our safety trainings remain in high demand by our members. In order to continue to provide our members with the best possible services, the Comp Alliance is conducting a regional training program covering all regions in New York State. Each regional training program will provide New York State mandated training on workplace violence, right-to-know, blood borne pathogen, HAZWOPER and harassment and discrimination training. The seminars are structured as train-the-trainer (leadership training) programs – attendees will be provided with the information and resources necessary to meet NYS training requirements, as well as tips and advise on how to successfully conduct similar training in their municipality.

Future seminars will be held on the following dates:  

  • March 10, 2016 – HUDSON VALLEY – Fishkill Town Hall
  • April 20, 2016 – SOUTHERN TIER – Hornell City Hall
  • April 27, 2016 – WESTERN NY – Aurora Town Hall
  • May 17, 2016 – LONG ISLAND – WRM Office Auditorium Uniondale, NY
  • September 20, 2016 – SOUTHERN TIER – Corning Town Hall
  • September 21, 2016 – NORTH COUNTRY – Beekmantown Town Hall
  • October 13, 2016 – CENTRAL NY – Illion Village Hall

Today more than ever, the Comp Alliance is dedicated to providing the best possible service to our members. Our success is evidenced by our member retention. We have retained 100 percent of our members for the past two January renewal cycles, and approximately 99 percent over the past four renewal cycles. Our high rate of member retention is a testament to the exceptional services provided to all program members.

The New York State Municipal Workers’ Compensation Alliance was established over 20 years ago with one of its cornerstones being to provide each and every member with one of  the best possible workers’ compensation options at the best possible price in New York State.

Today, as much as ever the Comp Alliance is dedicated to serving the needs of each and every member in our program. This has never been more evident than during the past three renewal periods in which the program has retained nearly 100% of its members while adding over 30 new municipalities and schools. This retention is a testament to the exceptional services provided to all program members.

We have had a very high demand for our risk management training seminars presented by the risk management staff of the Comp Alliance, from our program members, and agency partners.
