What skills do you bring to the office? What qualifications make you a viable candidate for the office?
I have over 22 years in the insurance industry, 20 of which have been in Compliance. I’ve been involved with AICP (as a member) since 2016 and as a board member for 3 years now.
What would be your goals for office if you are elected?
To be an effective liaison with the National Board, to represent the Heartland Chapter and to keep the Chapter informed of all issues relating to national activities.
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 advocate for continued educational, professional, networking and development opportunities to those in the insurance compliance industry.
Where would you like to see the AICP in the future and what would you do to move the AICP toward the vision?
I know we have started doing more outreach to students, but I think there is a definite opportunity to bring in younger compliance professionals.
