Access1st stemmed from Arthur J. Gallagher Insurance Brokers’ desire to provide value beyond insurance to our association partners.

Nevertheless, one of the most important benefits that any association can provide is member access to tailored association insurance schemes.

Association insurance schemes provide the right level of insurance protection for members, with the benefit of highly competitive pricing due to the bulk buying potential of the membership base.

Association members deserve great insurance. That’s why we put so much energy into tailoring insurance solutions for the unique needs of different professions and industries.

Our core products for association insurance schemes are combined professional indemnity and public liability (PI/PL) policies. We work with associations and insurance underwriters to tailor PI/PL policies specifically for the needs of particular industries, which we’re then able to offer at competitive rates.

In many cases, the insurance we’re able to provide association members saves them hundreds of dollars on premiums – often entirely off-setting their membership fees, allowing associations to provide real value and relevance to their members.

And because we’re brokers, we work for our clients, not for insurers, and can be relied on to provide advice in your members' best interest, and to assist them throughout the claims process.

Beyond our PI/PL association insurance schemes for your members, we also offer a full range of business insurance solutions for associations themselves. It's just as important for associations to look after their assets, staff and stakeholders and our range of insurance solutions can cover a wide range of common association risks and exposures, including:

  • Business and office insurance

  • Cyber protection

  • Association liability

  • Event cancellation

  • Corporate and personal travel
