Disclosures and Forms
The Academy of Life Underwriting (ALU), including On The Risk (OTR), is an organization that provides educational and developmental opportunities to life insurance underwriters worldwide. The organization depends on a talented and resourceful group of volunteers, supported by a small number of paid consultants, to effectively plan, manage, and carry out its educational activities. The organization expects those volunteers and consultants to carry out their individual responsibilities in the ALU Workplace with integrity, honesty, respect, and professionalism.
Code of Conduct
To that end, the ALU Board of Directors has created this Code of Conduct to describe the ALU Workplace, to set out standards for volunteer and consultant behavior within that workplace, and to describe actions to be taken for violations of those standards of behavior.
Policy Statement of Anti-Trust Compliance
The Academy of Life Underwriting (ALU) is a not-for-profit corporation principally consisting of volunteer members. The purpose of the ALU is to establish and administer professional education, certification and credentialing programs in the field of life insurance underwriting, and to improve and enhance business conditions in the life insurance underwriting industry. It is the nature of ALU’s business for volunteers from many life insurance and reinsurance companies to meet to accomplish this work.
Therefore, it is imperative for ALU and its volunteers to be sensitive to both the spirit and letter of anti-trust laws, which, broadly stated, prohibit any activities that might lessen or tend to lessen the desirable competition among the Academy’s volunteers and the companies they represent. It is the policy of ALU to avoid all activities which could or might appear to violate any anti-trust law or regulation.
If any ALU volunteer has a question or concern about this policy, he or she is encouraged to contact the ALU President or the Chair, ALU Board of Directors.
