We also want to congratulate Jackie DeLaFunte on her promotion to Senior P&C Underwriter.

Jackie holds a Master's degree in business administration, has obtained her ACSR, AINS, AU and AU-M designations and has received a certificate through The Institutes in Regulation and Compliance and continues to study for her CPCU designation. In addition to her underwriting duties, Jackie is a member of the Exposure Management Team with responsibility for compiling and monitoring our property exposure throughout the state.
Congratulations to Gail Locker, our P&C Underwriting Manager on attaining her CPCU designation. To obtain the CPCU credential, an individual must pass a number of classes covering insurance and risk management topics. This is a challenging designation comprised of nine courses and eight exams.
