Surplus Lines Association of New Jersey
NJSLA Insurace File

It was not until June, 1953, a well  meaning, far-sighted maverick group of "specialty writing" New Jersey Insurance Brokers formed the New Jersey Surplus Lines Association.  These 12 originators were not afraid to separate themselves from the more traditional, standard element in the industry and branch out into the more unique and specialized world of "Excess and Surplus Lines."

They set the standards, and their tradition continues.  From the original 12 to the present 61+, the "Surplus Lines Association of New Jersey, Inc." grows larger and stronger.  We remain dedicated and committed to serving and fulfilling the various, unique and specific insurance needs of New Jersey's residences and businesses.

The Surplus Lines Association of New Jersey, Inc. was formed and incorporated in the State of New Jersey as a nonprofit corporation for the following:

Our Purpose - "The NJSLA is dedicated to promoting the interests of agents, organizations, and individuals that support the Surplus Lines Industry and distribution system.

Our Business - The Association will conduct educational, regulatory, legislative, and promotional activities in a spirit of cooperation and goodwill.

Our Values - Good faith, while maintaining and encouraging the highest professional standards on behalf of the membership.
