ASEBP is different from traditional insurance providers and our governance structure offers no exception.
As a health and welfare trust established by the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) and the Alberta Teachers' Association (ATA), we’re governed by Trustees.
Because we’re not accountable to shareholders or driven by corporate profits, our Trustees are able to focus their attention and ASEBP’s efforts on what’s really important—the needs of Alberta’s school employees.
ASEBP Trustee Fast Facts
- 10 Trustees—five appointed by ASBA and five by the ATA
- Bound by a Deed of Trust which sets out our operational terms and conditions
- Believe that health benefits and services are a sound investment by the public education sector
- Believe that the success and sustainability of the plan and its impact on covered member health is a shared responsibility between us, employers and covered members
Our Trustees are also responsible for determining our mission, values and strategic direction. Our chief executive officer—appointed by the Trustees—along with the rest of ASEBP’s executive team then operationalize these and translate them into health initiatives, products and services which demonstrate a high value for covered members and their dependants.
