The $100 invoice received each March is the annual dues to BIE for those employers who are enrolled in Lovell’s Safety Group 469 and do not belong to a BIE affiliate construction association which is a member of BIE. As an affinity program of BIE, membership is required to have access to the workers compensation program.
Yes. Simply complete a membership application for your regional construction association that is a member of BIE. By becoming a member of your regional association that is a member of BIE you will receive all of the benefits and services from the association as well as Lovell’s workers compensation Safety Group 469.
The Board typically meets twice per year, however, it is not uncommon for the association executives to meet more frequently to address industry issues. Learn more about the BIE Board Members here.
BIE is unable to provide an answer to those two questions.
