MCIT Responds to Member Needs
MCIT’S MISSION: PROVIDING MINNESOTA COUNTIES AND ASSOCIATED MEMBERS COST-EFFECTIVE COVERAGE WITH COMPREHENSIVE AND QUALITY RISK MANAGEMENT SERVICES.
An overview of MCIT: Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust is a joint powers entity made up of Minnesota counties and associated public entities that pool resources to provide property, casualty and workers’ compensation coverage to members. MCIT also offers risk management and loss control services.
MCIT was established in 1979 pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 471.59 and 471.981, and is open to governmental units or other political subdivisions subject to approval by MCIT’s Board of Directors.
MCIT’s structure allows it to design programs and provide advice tailored to the individual member’s needs as demonstrated by MCIT’s visits with safety committees, attendance at board meetings, on-site trainings and phone or in-person consultations.
MCIT monitors legislation, court rulings, operational changes, the economic landscape, claims and member input to identify strategies to help members manage emerging risks. MCIT routinely considers modifications to coverage to address the changing exposures members have, and the MCIT staff develops programs and services designed to help members mitigate those exposures.
Poised for the Future
MCIT’s success is attributable to its members’ commitment to risk management and loss control. Due to the responsible and responsive leadership of the MCIT Board of Directors, MCIT remains a dynamic organization that evolves to meet the needs of its members while maintaining financial stability.
