DIAMOND BAR, CA — SEMA has expanded its member benefits with the creation of the Specialty Equipment Insurance Alliance (SEIA). The Alliance provides business insurance coverage to SEMA member companies through the services of Driver Alliant Insurances Services, one of SEMA’s benefit partners.

Driver Alliant is a subsidiary of Alliant Resources Group, a national distributor of insurance and financial services with a network of subsidiaries, affiliated companies and strategic partners. Headquartered in San Diego, Calif., Driver Alliant has been a SEMA member company since 1993, and has provided services to SEMA members for a decade. An insurance provider with extensive experience working with trade groups such as SEMA, Driver Alliant works with each SEMA member on an individual case basis.

“We are pleased to be working with Bob Corwin and his company on this expansion of our business services to our member companies,” said SEMA Vice President of Membership and Councils Faith Barnese. “SEMA has worked with Bob and his company for several years as one of our benefit partners. Driver Alliant has proven itself to be a help for our members time and time again. This will be a great expanded partnership.”

Driver Alliant becomes the broker of record for business insurance programs offered to SEMA members — including property, general liability, automotive, umbrella, workers compensation and professional insurance.

Barnese said that SEIA will communicate to SEMA member companies on an ongoing basis through the year, with direct marketing programs, communications through SEMA member publications and with representatives staffing the SEMA Association Center exhibits during four trade shows produced by SEMA in 2004.

“Because we know the automotive aftermarket so well after working within the industry for 10 years, we know the questions to ask members so that we can deliver the best quote and coverage to them,” said Corwin. According to Corwin, who is vice president of Driver Alliant, premium savings are often in the double-digit percentages, and can range as high as 50 percent.

Other SEMA-member business service benefits include a private-label credit card program (CarCareONE) and a freight savings program.

Information about SEIA and the other benefits of SEMA membership is available from Linda Lo, SEMA manager of membership services, [email protected], 909/396-0289, ext. 113.
