Member Resources

Golden State Risk Management Authority (GSRMA) provides small to medium sized public entities in California a solution to their insurance and risk management needs.

Larger California public entities like counties, cities and school districts have a dedicated staff of risk managers, legal counsel, claims specialists and loss prevention experts to administrate their insurance and risk management programs.

Smaller entities including rural counties, smaller municipalities, schools and special districts often do not have the budgets to support some or all of these staff positions.

GSRMA provides its member entities with the same level of support, knowledge and sophistication that larger districts enjoy and we do so at a lower cost than members were paying for their insurance coverage alone with their previous carrier.
