AIDA’s membership is made up of National Chapters - nationally
organised insurance law associations which are members of AIDA,
the parent organisation. AIDA does not have individual members
(physical and legal persons), those who are interested in the
work of AIDA are encouraged to join the relevant National
Chapter. Association for Insurance Law is the national
institution in Serbia of that kind.
Our Association tends to develop close co-operation with the
National Chapters of AIDA from the neighbouring countries,
having in mind that lack of financial means prevents connecting
with National Chapters from Americas, Asia and Australia.
Within the world of AIDA operates another regional organization – AIDA South America.
