WCLA Insurance Agency Inc.
American Forest CC RRG

American Forest Casualty Company Risk Retention Group (AFCC) was formed and established on September 1, 2003 to provide the most competitive and secure insurance coverage terms to Pacific Northwest loggers and logging companies. Since then, the company has grown successfully and expanded to also provide coverage for other timber and forestry related operations.

AFCC is domiciled in Vermont and licensed and authorized as a Risk Retention Group, pursuant to the Federal Risk Retention Act of 1986, to underwrite Commercial General Liability insurance, Loggers Broad Form Property Damage, and Commercial Automobile Liability insurance in the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and Montana.

Insurance policies are issued utilizing ISO standardized forms to a limit of $1,000,000 in coverage, with additional excess limits available. Insuring terms, premiums, and conditions are set by AFCC underwriters. Claims are administered by highly qualified local adjusters responsive to the needs of the insured.

As a requirement for insurance within AFCC, individual applicants must meet certain underwriting standards, be members of the Washington Contract Loggers Association, (WCLA) and purchase shares, or ownership, in the RRG.

The WCLA Insurance Agency is the sole and exclusive agent for American Forest Casualty Company RRG. This full service insurance agency is located in Olympia, Washington and employs a staff of 7 licensed agents, each with extensive commercial insurance experience.

WCLA has been in existence for over 47 years serving its membership with various services and support, including Insurance, Risk Management, Safety Training, and Loss Control programs. WCLA has a very long history of delivering underwriting profits to insurance companies and now those positive results can be turned into reduced insurance costs for the insureds plus increased market strength and stability for the future of AFCC.
