The Board of Managers oversees the affairs of the Association County Commissioners of Georgia and supports the organization’s mission to provide leadership enhancement, cost-effective services and advocacy and public policy development on behalf of members and their communities. The Board is responsible for hiring the executive director and appointing members to other ACCG boards that oversee workers’ compensation, group health benefits, risk management, pension and retirement programs.
ACCG - IRMA is a self-insured pool that members join to provide insurance coverage for property, automobile, general liability, law enforcement liability, public official's liability, crime and boiler and machinery exposures. It is owned by its members and managed by a Board of Trustees whose members are from participating counties. Since county governments operate different types of agencies from the private section – such as law enforcement, jails, and roads – their exposures are unique and require specialized coverage.
ACCG - GSIWCF is a cooperative self-insured arrangement among its members, created to finance or self-insure workers' compensation coverage. The fund is owned by its members and managed by a seven-member Board of Trustees composed of representatives from participating counties. It is regulated by the Georgia Insurance Commissioners Office.
ACCG - GHBP is a group program that provides health care coverage and benefits to member counties and their employees. ACCG - GHBP contracts with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa) and uses the pooling concept to group all members together, keeping premiums as low as possible. The program also offers a self-insured option for larger counties that want to retain a portion of the risk; BCBSGA claims services and discounts are provided. In addition to health insurance, ACCG - GHBP offers opportunities to reduce the cost of medical care for county inmates. Savings may be realized by using Blue Cross/Blue Shield provider networks for routine care or by insuring against large, catastrophic losses.
