Dawn has worked in the insurance industry for over 15 years. In 2005 she joined Standard Insurance Company’s Individual Annuity department as a Product & Service Specialist. She quickly mastered her role and was promoted to a Senior Product & Service Specialist. Dawn’s vast knowledge of the department, attention to detail and organizational skills were highly respected and gained her recognition throughout the department. In 2016 she thought she’d try something a little different and wanted a chance to see another side of the business. She applied for and was promoted to a Compliance Analyst. Since becoming an Analyst, she’s been responsible for the Individual Annuity department’s suitability program; conducting and drafting the department’s annual audits as well as providing the department’s suitability and replacement training. She performs the review and the filing of advertising materials, assists with data calls and market conduct exams, as well as drafting compliance advisories. By working on both sides of the business she adds a unique perspective.
Dawn is a native Oregonian and has been married to her husband Scott for the past twenty-three years. She enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family and hunting for vintage treasures.
Dawn has been a member of the AICP since 2016 and has acted as Secretary for the Northwest Chapter since 2018.
What skills do you bring to the office? What qualifications make you a viable candidate for the office?
Skills that I would bring to the office would be active listening, clear communication, both verbal and written, organization, problem solving, dependability and flexibility.
What would be your goals for office if you are elected?
My goal, if elected as NW chapter Regional Director, would be to successfully and positively represent the NW chapter at all AICP meetings and events, just as our current acting Regional Director has.
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?
If elected, I would use the office to work with others within the AICP organization to ensure its continued growth and present the positive impact that it’s had on the insurance and compliance community. I would do this by representing the NW chapter and the entire AICP organization at national events as well as other outside industry opportunities.
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 like to see AICP continue to grow and flourish. I would encourage non-members to see all of the benefits that the AICP organization provides, which include networking opportunities with others in the compliance and insurance industry, especially those working within the regulatory environment. The educational resources AICP provides, such as chapter E-Day’s and annual conferences.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my membership with the AICP organization and the all of the benefits it provides to those within our industry. It’s been nothing but a pleasure acting as the NW chapter Secretary and I hope to continue my involvement within the chapter as the NW Regional Director.
