Trade Association Programs

If you represent a trade association or similar organization and would like to bring the benefits of ADR to your members, please consider partnering with Forum to develop an appropriate rule set, assemble an expert panel of neutrals, and efficiently administer the cases. 

What trade association ADR programs does Forum currently administer?

  • American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) – AMSA offers a Household Goods Dispute Settlement Program to assist consumers and AMSA-member moving companies in the dispute resolution process. Claims are reviewed and decided by independent arbitrators who serve on a specialized panel.  By managing the process for AMSA, the Forum makes it easier for dissatisfied customers and moving companies to have their grievances resolved in a manner that is fast, affordable and fair.
  • American Land Title Association (ALTA) – ALTA, the national trade association of title insurance companies, relies on the Forum to resolve its commercial title insurance disputes.  ALTA-member companies benefit from efficient and affordable case administration as well as a custom set of rules to govern the dispute resolution process. They enjoy peace of mind knowing that any disputes will be handled by an experienced ADR provider and an arbitrator selected from an expert panel.
