We understand that IMWCA is more than a service provider to our members. We also serve as coaches, mentors, colleagues and advocates. IMWCA is here to help members keep employees safe through education and risk management.
To make sure our people are best positioned to serve in those roles, IMWCA contracts for administrative services with the Iowa League of Cities. It’s a logical connection — the League helped create IMWCA and understands the many challenges facing Iowa’s local governments. Meet the League staff dedicated to providing IMWCA services.
The IMWCA team is led by Alan Kemp, executive director for the Iowa League of Cities, and Jeff Hovey, Director of Risk Services. Alan serves as IMWCA’s official pool administrator and an ex-officio board member. Jeff Hovey manages the team tasked with IMWCA’s day-to-day business operations.
IMWCA claims examiners work exclusively with our members. We are committed to providing prompt, courteous claim services. Our experienced examiners specialize in the types of losses unique to local government employees. We work with all parties involved to reach prompt, fair resolutions to claims.

Contact them for questions on billing, premium invoices, commissions, W-9s, and 1099s, IMWCA is proud have maintained the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for more than 20 years.
