FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ECBM Insurance Brokers & Consultants Participates In The Chubb Charity Challenge On Behalf of Women's Way
The event will be at Ace Country Club on May 14, 2018.
ECBM Insurance Brokers & Consultants has provided commercial insurance brokerage and consulting services to the Mid-Atlantic region since 1970. Charlie Bernier, along with Gloria Forbes and Rick Eckert, assumed ownership of this independent firm in January, 2001. Their combined vision was to bring national account services to all of their clients cost-efficiently, and they have been doing so ever since. ECBM participates in many different community service and charity events that touch the lives of our employees and serve our community including St. Baldrick's Foundation, Cradles To Crayons, Operation First Response, The Conshohocken Little League, The Breathing Room Foundation, The Borough of West Conshohocken, The Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association, local food bank charities, The Arc of Hundterdon County, MuckFest MS for The National MS Society, The Heart of Camden, The Chubb Charity Challenge, and The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Walk.
Brokers (like ECBM) and agent friends and clients join with Chubb's local staff around North America to enjoy a day on the course dedicated to fun and philanthropy. At least five foursomes must play in each local event, each choosing their own charity to play for. The winner earns the trip to the finals to play for $50,000.

More About The Challenge
More than 6,000 charities across the United States and Canada have received donations through agent, broker and client participation in the annual Chubb Charity Challenge golf tournament.
More than 5,200 teams of agents, brokers and clients have played in the Chubb Charity Challenge since 2000. 740 teams have advanced to the national tournament.
On a beautiful October day in 1996, Chubb's Murray Hill office hosted the first Chubb Charity Challenge for twenty-five producers at New Jersey's Metedeconk Golf Club. Local New Jersey charities received $25,000 in donations from the event. The producers had a wonderful time and again supported a New Jersey Charity Challenge in 1997 and again in 1998.
It was thought that combining an event for Chubb's agents and their chosen charities would benefit Chubb, the producers and the community. The thankful letters from numerous charities that benefited from unexpected donations coupled with the producers' enthusiastic support of what Chubb was trying to do was proof that the idea was sound.
In 1999, Chubb's Northern Zone decided to expand on the original Challenge concept. Ten branches held local qualifying events that had foursomes from at least five producers as participants. The winning foursome from each branch was then invited to attend the Zone's "Tournament of Champions" at Whistling Straits Golf Club in Kohler, Wisconsin. Those ten teams played for a total purse of $50,000.
The 2000 to 2017 Challenges exceeded everyone's expectations. As we continue the tradition in our 19th Challenge in 2018, we are hopeful that we will continue the momentum. Good luck and let the games go on.

At ECBM, we understand that insurance programs are more than an end; they are a means to meet business and financial objectives that change over time. ECBM works with our clients to design and maintain a risk management approach which is built on a solid foundation and knowledge of their business goals and corporate climates. Uninsured losses are expensive as are improperly handled claims. At ECBM, our focus is providing the lowest net cost to our clients at all times.
ECBM builds long-term relationships with all the clients we work with. It frees us from the burden of over-consulting. We give solid, appropriate advice each time we meet, even if that means making a suggestion that will earn us less money. Earning our clients' trust and retaining their business is the key to everyone's success. Maintaining strong client relationships requires superior service. ECBM strives to provide that service by knowing our clients, their business needs and providing quality insurance and risk management services to meet those needs.
When clients choose an insurance broker, they should not only get expert advice, but an attitude, a culture, and a way of doing business. At ECBM we offer all of these things. ECBM not only does good work for our clients but work that is more on target, more meaningful and more valuable to their businesses. ECBM has provided commercial insurance brokerage and consulting services to the Mid-Atlantic region since 1970. Charlie Bernier, along with Gloria Forbes and Rick Eckert, assumed ownership of this independent firm in January 2001. Their combined vision was to bring national account services to all of their clients cost-efficiently, and they have been doing so ever since.
Under the present leadership, ECBM’s client-focused approach has allowed the firm to grow significantly. ECBM knows it is important not only to develop service capabilities but to create standards and methods for monitoring consistent delivery of the services it promises to its clients. By creating and managing this process, the company has been able to consistently exceed client expectations.
