VLCT's Risk Management Services department (RMS) operates PACIF and VERB, the two non-profit, member-owned risk-sharing trusts established by VLCT members to meet their particular insurance needs. Both offer even the smallest of Vermont's municipalities a unique combination of coverage and services, many of which can only be garnered by a large group. Under the direction of their respective Boards of Directors, these trusts are operated by staff who are not only experienced professionals: they also understand the distinct operations and risk exposures of Vermont municipal entities.
