⚖️Slides from last weeks session with Peter from the Alliance for Insurance reform

  • Download the slides here
  • During the session, we talked about potentially setting up purchasing groups for buying insurance in bulk, in order to obtain discounts. These groups could be divided up into bikes, textiles, WEEE recycling etc. Let us know if you’d be interested in having CRNI facilitate these, we’d be happy to do so!
