Lee joined 64 participants from throughout the Midwest. Managers learned more about a variety of topics, including contractual responsibilities, preparing for state exams, dwelling and homeowners RPM and rate study, and emerging issues.
They also received extended training on management, claims, underwriting, reinsurance, marketing, and technology.

The Academy offers a great opportunity for that.”
