Mike Sowa, IRUA's President and Executive Vice President of Aspen Re said:  "We extend a warm welcome to Cincinnati and State National to IRUA membership.  For one low annual corporate subscription the benefits of IRUA membership extend to ALL members and affiliates within a reinsurance/insurance organization so it represents tremendous value which these fine companies have recogmized."

IRUA ACQUIRES THE IRUA.ORG DOMAIN NAME!!

In the near future will be migrating to using irua.org as our main domain URL.  While we transition both .com and .org accounts will be linked so there should be no change in accessibility of both the website and email accounts.

We feel having a .org suffix better reflects the not-for-profit status of the IRUA.
