As vice president of membership, Terry works to maintain NAMIC’s status as the largest property/casualty trade association in the country through the recruitment and retention of member insurance companies, reinsurance companies, reinsurance brokers, and other companies that provide insurance-related services and products to the association’s membership. He also leads our efforts to develop partnership programs designed to support members, which today includes a telematics initiative and the ICOLI investment program.
