Board members, company leadership, and reinsurance representatives from FMH attended the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC) 121st Annual Convention held in Vancouver, Canada this past September.
The NAMIC Annual Convention provides an opportunity for mutual companies to network with peers, receive updates on industry breaking news and trends, and meet with reinsurers and rating bureaus – all in one location.
"NAMIC is the nation’s largest industry association for mutual insurance companies. Each year, it is the premier educational event for mutual insurance companies," said Ron Kuethe, Senior Vice President - Reinsurance. "Many reinsurance clients of FMH attend this convention, and it provides a great opportunity for FMH to visit with those clients, as well as several of our reinsurers and reinsurance brokers who also attend this event."
Aaron Rutledge, Assistant Vice President and Compliance Manager, received his Farm Mutual Director Certification (FMDC) during the NAMIC Annual Meeting (pictured above).
The program provides courses in the areas of operations and insurance, finance and accounting, corporate governance, and management. The training ultimately provides recipients with the knowledge to be more confident and effective board members within their company. Rutledge currently serves on the FMH Board of Directors.
