I have been a member of the AICP since 2014 and have attended several E-Days and annual conferences over the years. I served on the Gulf States Website committee before becoming Vice President of the Gulf States Chapter in 2018. Due to an unforeseen vacancy, I stepped into the role of President almost immediately after being elected as VP, and I have been President since that time.
What skills do you bring to the office? What qualifications make you a viable candidate for the office?
With just over twenty years of experience in the insurance industry, having worked in both underwriting and compliance, I have a unique perspective of and appreciation for both sides and how they best work together in maintaining a strong and collaborative business relationship. Being the liaison between the National Board and our Chapter would be a natural next step for me since during my time as a chapter officer, I have already created relationships with board members while working closely with them to achieve our chapter’s goals each year.
What would be your goals for office if you are elected?
It would be my goal to keep both the National Board and my chapter informed of initiatives, ideas, issues, concerns, etc. while continuing to enhance the overall benefit of membership within the AICP to ultimately see growth in the organization and more involvement at all levels.
If elected, how would you use your office to work with others in the AICP to pursue the AICP’s current goals and objectives, to meet member needs, and to enhance the AICP’s value in our insurance compliance community?
I would use my role to bring about discussion and collaboration at the national level on topics important to members so that every voice feels heard and taken into account. As different issues arise, it will be my honor to work alongside my fellow Regional Directors to come up with answers and action plans that will be in the best interest of all involved.
Where would you like to see the AICP in the future and what would you do to move the AICP toward the vision?
I would love to see the AICP grow its membership and outreach. I think we do that by continuing to offer many of the virtual opportunities to learn and network with one another that we have relied on so heavily during this past year even after things return to “normal”. It is important that the AICP stay innovative and useful to those incoming members to show that we truly are a value added organization and that the knowledge and information they will receive here is well worth the time, money, and energy invested. I would be ready and available to share thoughts and offer suggestions while working with other board members and chapter officers to help accomplish that.
