NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2021 – The Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I) is a proud sponsor of the American Property Casualty Insurance Association’s (APCIA) 2021 Emerging Leaders Conference (ELC), which is being held virtually on Monday, Feb. 22 and Tuesday, Feb. 23.
“We congratulate this year’s Emerging Leaders Conference honorees on their significant contributions to the success of the insurance industry,” said Sean Kevelighan, CEO, Triple-I. “Insurers faced extreme challenges in 2020 due to the pandemic. These young professionals not only made a positive impact in how their companies served their stakeholders last year but also provided leadership on the industry’s diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.”
APCIA released the names and affiliations of the ELC’s 123-member Class of 2021 in December 2020.
The honorees were drawn from a wide range of job functions: actuarial, claims, government relations, human resources, legal, marketing, product development, public relations, technology and underwriting. Nominees needed a minimum of eight years of job experience to be considered for the honor.
The two days of virtual ELC sessions are open only to individuals affiliated with APCIA member companies. The conference will include discussions on Key Leadership Traits from COVID and For the Path Ahead, Accelerating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Insurance, and Philanthropy and Volunteerism in a Virtual Time.
Held every February as part of Insurance Careers Month, the annual ELC is hosted by APCIA, the Insurance Careers Movement (ICM), and AM Best. ICM’s mission is to enhance insurance companies’ talent recruitment efforts among U.S. college students and young professionals and to showcase the variety of insurance industry career opportunities. AM Best is the largest credit rating agency in the world specializing in the insurance industry.
