MEMIC believes in fair treatment and honest dealings in all that it does, whether with employees, policyholders, injured workers, agents, regulators, vendors or other business partners. To that end, we have worked to foster a culture that supports these values. While these values are reinforced each and every day, they are formalized by an annual review and signing by every employee of the company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (.pdf 162 KB).
We believe that our values have been key to our overall success since our inception in 1993. And, with that in mind, we intend to continue this commitment indefinitely.

- Employee Volunteers
MEMIC employees are involved members of their local communities. The company encourages this involvement by example and by getting behind efforts to raise funds and help in our local area. Chief among these efforts is our annual United Way campaign. In 2009, MEMIC’s employees pledged more than $55,000 to the United Way. In addition, employees led efforts to raise funds for the local chapter of the American Heart Association and the National Kidney Foundation. Employees in our home office in Portland, Maine raise thousands of dollars for “Strikeout Cancer in Kids”, a fundraiser for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program.
