Contribute to Standards Development

ACORD isn't just Standards and Forms. At its core, ACORD is people.

ACORD members and volunteers from across the full spectrum of the insurance industry unite behind the common goals of efficiency and progress embodied by the ACORD Standards. Our standards development process is driven by professionals like you, all willing to volunteer time and share expertise to improve our entire industry.

Implementation Communities

ACORD Implementation Communities are member-driven, collaborative efforts which create, maintain, and refine the ACORD Standards. There are several groups, tailored to different lines of business and geographic regions. We welcome your interest in any Implementation Community which serves your needs.
