The Wind Is (Finally) Blowing

Florida’s Property Insurance Market
With Hurricane Hermine bearing down on Florida, I recognized that I could not physically do anything to assist my sister and her family in Jacksonville (or my friends and extended family throughout the state), nor my insurance company clients that admirably serve the communities that will be affected by the storm.

The Midwest Actuarial Forum (MAF) will hold its Fall Meeting at the Marriott Hotel in Normal, Illinois on Friday, September 16th. As Vice-President of the MAF, I’m excited about bringing this dynamic organization to central Illinois. It’s a wonderful and convenient opportunity for local actuaries to come together, learn and meet fellow professionals from other companies, as well as pick up some valuable continuing education (including professionalism).
