Nominees Announced for the Inaugural 2019 Emerging Leaders Conference in Miami

CHICAGO – The Emerging Leaders Conference, powered by the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI), the Insurance Careers Movement (ICM), and A.M. Best, today announced its inaugural class of 83 of the best and brightest rising talents in insurance who have been invited to an exclusive executive development and networking event in February 2019.

“The Insurance Careers Movement was launched to address the pending talent shortage in the insurance industry,” said Jessica Hanna, PCI’s senior vice president of public affairs. “The industry needed a centralized campaign to showcase the innovation and excitement in insurance jobs. The first phase was to build a grassroots, social media, and digital movement to spread the word that insurance is the career trifecta—stable, rewarding, and limitless. The Emerging Leaders Conference is the next dynamic and tangible phase of the Insurance Careers Movement. We are proud to show ideas turning into action.”

The Emerging Leaders Conference is the next global industry initiative from the Insurance Careers Movement, which aims to harness the tremendous responses and energy from the first digital engagement phase of the ICM. The conference is multi-dimensional, providing company CEOs a way to get involved in industry-wide recruitment, in addition to developing new leaders within the industry. Insurance industry CEOs and executives were asked to nominate rising stars within their organizations. These up and coming leaders will receive executive training from top industry icons, giving emerging leaders new perspectives on industry challenges, opportunities, and enterprise-wide leadership. The conference will provide networking opportunities, and in turn the participants will be recruited to become ambassadors for the industry.

The nominees below represent a wide-range of job functions including actuarial, claims, client relations, finance, marketing, product development, risk management, sales, technology, and underwriting. They work from coast to coast as well as overseas. Nominees have approximately 8-10 years of job experience and are already making a positive impact on their companies and the industry.

“The Emerging Leaders Conference nomination process was created to help spark internal conversations about rising stars within companies and to provide a professional development opportunity that rewards high performers. The conference is career focused and will also embed health and wellness strategies to help fuel a healthy executive lifestyle,” said Marguerite Tortorello, president of Tortorello Communications and one of the founding members of Insurance Careers Movement.

The following quotes about the nominations highlight the outstanding caliber of the selected Emerging Leaders Conference attendees:

“It is rare to find an individual with the passion, dedication, and professionalism that she exhibits each and every day. It is at times when tension is high and the pressure of a deadline looms that great leaders rise to the occasion. There is no better individual than she that we would want in control during those times.”

“His passion and commitment to his core responsibilities show his desire to excel in his role. He treats his work as his craft, constantly striving for improvement by way of industry designations and furthering his education. However, he realizes that his individual success will not grow the company, it takes the entire team, working in unison with focus, determination, and a touch of fun that will put us on a path for growth and success. His passion and motivation inspire others on the team to accomplish our goals and create a better future for the next generation.”

“She is a consistent high achiever who continually challenges herself and those around her to excellence. Her personal contributions to the branch and organization are framed by her high degree of confidence, honesty, respect and passion for success.”

The Emerging Leaders Conference will be held Feb. 24 - 26, 2019, at the Confidante Hotel during the 4th Annual February Insurance Careers Month. The agenda will feature panel discussions with leading company CEOs providing insights on major industry trends and sharing knowledge on some of the most pressing issues facing insurance.

The nominees will have an opportunity to network with insurance executives from diverse job functions in a vibrant environment. Click here to learn more about the Insurance Careers Movement or how to get involved.

We encourage you to follow the conversation on social media #ELC2019. For information on sponsorship opportunities contact Kristen McCann at kristen.mccann@pciaa.net

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

Hello NAIIA members! I am excited to bring to you the collaboration piece for October 2018. In mid-2018, the compliance officer at Hausch & Co. was doing an internal review of our website. He brought to my attention that we did not have a Terms of Use and Privacy Policy on our website. We then started looking at samples of several other websites that eventually led us to the CPLIC, RRG website. We concluded the Hausch & Co did not have one, neither did CPLIC, RRG or the NAIIA. We then looked at several member sites and did not find any on member websites either.

We reached out to CPLIC, RRG to discuss the lack of a Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for all of us. Karen Haltman at CPLIC, RRG took the lead and thought it was a good topic to review. She has thoroughly researched the topic and has yielded the following information for our members:

1.  Readability – should be grade 12 or lower. 86.7% of U.S. Adults read at a high school level.

2. California has a Privacy Policy Law (Business & Professional Code §§ 2257-22578) which has been in effect since January 1, 2004, states:

“operators of commercial websites or online services that collect personal information on California residents through a web site to conspicuously post a privacy policy on the site and to comply with its policy. The privacy policy must, among other things, identify the categories of personally identifiable information collected about site visitors and the categories of third parties with whom the operator may share the information. The privacy policy must also provide information on the operator’s online tracking practices. An operator is in violation for failure to post a policy within 30 days of being notified of noncompliance, or if the operator either knowingly and willfully or negligently and materially fails to comply with the provisions of its policy.

In summary, a company’s privacy policy must identify the categories of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) collected on website visitors and the categories of third parties that the company shares the data with. In 2014, the policy was expanded to include two additional aspects: 

1.  The privacy policy should disclose how it responds to a web browser ‘Do Not Track’ signal

2.  Requires the website to disclose where third parties are or may be conducting such tracking on the operator’s site.

Connecticut requires any company or person that collects Social Security numbers in the course of business, must create a privacy protection policy. Policy must be ‘publicly displayed’ by posting on a web page and the policy must '(1) protect the confidentiality of Social Security numbers, (2) prohibit unlawful disclosure of Social Security numbers, and (3) limit access to Social Security numbers.'
I left in an optional paragraph detailing whether data is shared. CPLIC, RRG does not sell its list but left the option for those that might.

Karen has attached a Generic Website Privacy Policy. It’s been reviewed by CPLIC, RRG’s General Counsel; CPLIC, RRG’s BoD; and she has also run it be several people including our past president, Peter Crosa.

We think its important for all members to have a Terms of Use and Privacy Policy added to their website. It is a trend that is coming to all states and is relevant to the data protection rules that you will be seeing as requirements to operate in your states. There are a lot of requirements coming out from the State of California effective 01/01/2019. Anyone that is doing London work had the GDPR requirements come out earlier in 2018.

A huge thank you to Karen Haltman and CPLIC, RRG for all of their efforts on researching this topic and drafting the initial piece for our members. There is a link in this article to download the document for member use as you see fit. It is my recommendation that everyone considers this as part of their business plan going forward.

New Licensing Option for Independent Insurance Adjusters

NAIIA Members, I bring some intriguing news delivered by Peter Schifrin. He reported on this topic for the CAIIA and is sharing his research with us.

The Universal Claims Certification (UCC) program, created by the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM), has been approved by the following states: Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas. The UCC is a new process to obtain an independent adjuster license in any of the approved states. Both licensed adjusters and those without a license can acquire a UCC. Unlicensed adjusters must complete a 40-hour course and exam to acquire the UCC. Once an adjuster has the UCC, they can quickly obtain a license in states where the UCC is approved, including California.

Adjusters who handle claims in multiple states will be able to use the UCC to obtain licenses as additional states are added. The goal of the UCC is to be accepted by all states requiring licensing and to become the clearinghouse for adjusters to acquire the state licensing they need to work anywhere in the country.

For a licensee to maintain the UCC, he or she must complete 24 hours of continuing education every two years, including five hours of insurance law and ethics. The UCC program's insurance law and ethics requirement exceeds California's required three hours of ethics that is a part of and not in addition to the 24-hour continuing education requirement. The CLM anticipates that registration for the UCC will be open in a few weeks. More about the UCC is available at https://www.theclm.org/UCC.

A big thank you to Peter Schifrin (Past CAIIA President, President of SGD, and Past RVP Western Region NAIIA) for taking the time and effort to share this news with our members.

Regional Meetings – President’s Report from the Road

Since our last Newsletter, I have attended two regional meetings. The first was the Western Regional Meeting in Portland, Oregon September 5-8, 2018. We were at the Sheraton, located at the Portland airport. It was a successful meeting that was well attended by many members. Several past Regional VP’s and Executive Members attended and contributed. It was also the first Regional meeting of our new Executive Director, Sheri Csom. I thank them all for their continued effort and participation in the association.

The main education session was provided by EDT Engineers. The young engineer I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with was quite impressive. He has a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and worked for the US Government in the Department of the Navy. He was part of a team that tested Naval warships when they came in for service. He had amazing stories and is a great representation of the qualified engineers at EDT. Someone I feel confident in recommending to investigate any mechanical failure claim I would have. Thank you to EDT for their presentation and for assisting the insurance industry nationwide.

A special thank you also to David and Stacy LeNorman for all of their work putting together the meeting. It was successful and all involved are looking forward to another successful meeting in early October of 2019 for the Western Region. The 2019 meeting is scheduled for Las Vegas, Nevada and I encourage members from all regions to attend.

The second regional meeting for this newsletter was the MidStates Region, my home region, and someplace I am always happy to be and attend. We have had record meetings the last few years. This year it was held October 3rd through the 5th at the Embassy Suites in downtown Chicago, Illinois. The first day kicked off with another Umpire and Appraisal class for the CIA and CIU designation. I am proud to report that 19 members attended the certification class.

Instructor Mr. Kevin Hromas is an incredibly knowledgeable educator. I attended the class and can state that the class is thorough and region specific. The exam is legitimate, and no one is guaranteed to pass. The class is very worthwhile. I commend the efforts of Joel Moore of Gulf Coast Claim Service and Mr. Kevin Hromas for their efforts to get this program up and started. I believe it is a stepping stone for the association and the members to obtain educational opportunities that are not readily available throughout the industry. Appraisal and Umpire opportunities, for our member firms, are becoming more common throughout the industry.

That night, there was a reception and dinner. The following morning was the Advisory Council and Business meetings. The Advisory Council had all six council members in attendance. There was a very good Q&A in the morning going through changes in the industry. The meeting was moderated by Mr. John Henderson of Wickizer & Clutter.

The afternoon lunch and learn was presented by ACR. ACR, https://www.acrrestores.com/, is a Midwest restoration company that specializes in Maintaining Operational Continuity. They provided a detailed class on moisture mitigation and new cost savings methods. They are in their 32nd year of business, and we thank them for their time and support. 

We are thankful for all of the MidStates members that attended. More than 30 people attended the meeting. It was a great representation of the strength of the MidStates Region and the number of quality insurance professionals in the area.

John and Cindy Henderson are owed a big thank you for their preparation, hosting, and organizing of the event. We had two great dinners, a fine hotel to stay at, and a professional event from start to finish.

We are glad to announce that Nino Berardi of LJ Shaw, Lombard, Illinois was nominated as the incoming RVP. We know that he will do a great job and continue the successful tradition of the RVP’s in the Midstates Region.

NAIIA Members Support Fat Guy in Shorts Golf Tourney

The NAIIA is happy to report on an annual charity golf tournament put on by one of our member firms from Arizona, 2B Claim Services.  The Fat Guys in Shorts Tournament was held on September 22, 2018 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, AZ.

The event was sponsored by several NAIIA members including CJ Hester, SGD, Norcross and AmeriClaim. Several of our members played in the event - Peter Schifrin, Peter Crosa and Beth Crosa. They were happy to survive the Scottsdale heat!

Fat Guys in Shorts began in 2010 to support, Jerry Anzalone, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in the fall of 2009.  The first two years of Fat Guys in Shorts was dedicated to helping Jerry and his family with mounting medical bills and out of pocket expenses.

In September 2011, Jerry lost his battle with cancer, but Fat Guys in Shorts continued to support Jerry’s two young boys, Alex and Cameron, with their college tuition.  With the help of Fat Guys in Shorts charitable donations, Alex graduated from Arizona State University in 2017 with a degree in Business Administration and Cameron is in his 3rd year at Arizona State University and is expected to graduate in 2019.

Fat Guys in Shorts is now Fat Guys in Shorts Foundation. The Fat Guys in Shorts Foundation recently obtained their 501(c)(3) accreditation through the Arizona Corporation Commission and is continuing their focus on providing college scholarships to other children, within the insurance claims industry, who have lost a parent unexpectedly.

Next year’s event will be held in October 2019.  Members can visit the website at www.fatguysinshorts.com for updates. Plan to attend or become a sponsor.

Five Members Earn CIA and CIU Designations at Western Region Meeting

Congratulations to the NAIIA members who successfully completed the training and passed the examination for the Certified Insurance Appraiser (CIA) and Certified Insurance Umpire (CIU) designations at the Western Region Meeting last week in Portland, Oregon

This training is a new NAIIA member benefit in partnership with the Society of Registered Professional Adjusters (RPA) and is open only to our members. You can find more information at this link. 

The following members are the inaugural recipients of these two certifications as promulgated by the NAIIA and the Society of Registered Professional Adjusters:
David LeNorman, Alaska Adjusters
Michael Marsh, Midland Claims Service
Curt Stradling, Schneider & Associated
Steve McDonald, Tri-State Adjusting
Craig Nance, Zaremba Claims Service

The presenters were:
Kevin Hromas, Kevin Hromas & Associates
Paul Impellezzeri, Barbanel & Treuer PC

Mr. Hromas conducted the Appraiser & Umpire training during the morning session. Kevin was clear & concise and answered many questions, typically jurisdictional specific.

Paul Impellezzeri lead the legal training session in the afternoon. He gave jurisdictional specific case citations from each state represented at the meeting - Alaska, Arizona, Montana, Oregon and Washington.

The training is state-specific and will be conducted at the five regional sites across the United States as part of the regional conferences. Participants will have access to a downloadable version of the information provided. It is recommended that the first full day of the regional conferences be set aside for the training program as the last hour will encompass a comprehensive test on the materials.

Training Cost:  $200 per person

If you are interested in obtaining the CIA or CIU designations, please contact Joel Moore, RPA, NAIIA President-Elect, Gulf Coast Claims Service (832) 706-1921 or Joel.Moore@gulfcoastclaims.com.

Two Collaboration Strategies that Have Helped Fuel Success

In my inauguration speech, I stated the best way I know to volunteer is to share what has worked for me. I will be sharing what I have found to be worthwhile and beneficial to me as an individual and small business owner. I hope you enjoy these articles and that every member can get something out of them.

First, at the NAIIA convention in Point Clear Alabama, Don Lederer as the Education Chair brought in Dr. Tom Hanson to speak. Dr. Tom is a business coach, best-selling author, and professional sports coach. He wrote Who Will Do What by When? How to Improve Performance, Accountability and Trust with Integrity. This is an excellent communication book set in an insurance agency and he has also authored baseball books, Heads-Up Baseball 2.0 and Play Big.  He worked full time for the NY Yankees and has worked for several teams and players in MLB as well as business professionals throughout the country.

I want to get better at everything I do. Working with Tom is a process of identifying your challenges and working together to find a solution. All of the action is centered on what you will do. How do you want to improve and change? How do you expect to grow and are you willing to put the work in to get better? It’s no different than talking about running a 5k for two years or setting the goal and starting to train and work towards achieving your goal.

I have spoken to Tom monthly, sometimes semi-monthly, for the last ten years. It has helped me identify my goals and identify a path to start on to achieve them. I highly recommend business coaches and always working on improving yourself and your business. If you would like to talk to Dr. Tom, you can reach him at DrTomHanson@gmail.com or (813) 453-3467.

Second, I also suggest checking out a podcast called Inside Strategic Coach. One of the programs Dr. Tom honed his skills from was developed by Dan Sullivan. Dan is a business coach to some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world. To get into his Game Changer program requires a $100,000 payment, that cannot be sponsored corporately.

For the common folk like me, thankfully, Dan Sullivan’s podcast is free. I find it incredibly insightful, they are under 20 minutes, and if you are open to outside thoughts, will change how you think about your work and free time. Check out The Strategic Coach Signature Program.

I suggest starting with “How to Grow Your Business and Your Free Time Simultaneously.” It is one of my favorite episodes, and I think you will find some repeating themes from the messages you will hear from me, throughout the year.

If it’s a business coach, streaming a podcast, or pursuing a passion, I encourage everyone to never stop learning. I hope everyone is having a great year, and if there is anything I can do to help anyone, please don’t hesitate to contact me (I’m big on collaborating).

Yours in service,

David Hausch
