The American Boat & Yacht Council is offering a new membership category designed for insurance companies and law firms operating in the marine industry.

Because settling disputes, assigning subrogation, various litigation scenarios and managing loss control all involve large amounts of money, the organization is providing a wider range of services to these members.

They will now have access to archived standards from 1973 to the present, industry research, including archived minutes and technical documents, and off-line technical assistance and consultation.

On-site, custom-designed seminars and training can be scheduled for underwriting and loss-control managers to influence positive outcomes.

"Our affiliation with ABYC and their knowledgeable staff is invaluable, from connections with industry experts to hard-to-find details on standards and regulations," lawyer Christina M. Paul, of K&L Gates LLP, said in a statement. "The ABYC and all of its membership benefits are a must-have resource for the legal and insurance side of the marine business."

Members in this category also will receive the regular benefits. They include 24-hour online access to the standards, listing in an online directory, networking vents at on-site locations and the opportunity to participate in technical committees to shape the way standards are written.
