The National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies has selected Tami Stanton, former vice president of the Insurance Institute of Indiana, as state affairs manager for the Northeast United States.
She will be pursuing the NAMIC’s strategic objectives before state legislatures in collaboration with state insurance trade associations, and departments of insurance in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and the District of Columbia.
“Tami brings a very successful insurance-centered government affairs background as well as executive-level trade association experience to NAMIC,” commented Roger H. Schmelzer, vice president of State and Regulatory Affairs. “She clearly understands the issues facing the property/casualty industry and how to effectively serve our member companies.”
At the Insurance Institute, Stanton lobbied the Indiana General Assembly on insurance issues ranging from tort reform to worker’s compensation for more than 20 years. She was also involved in developing the Institute’s 1,700-member legislative grassroots network and Insurance Political Action Committee (IPAC), one of the largest state insurance trade political action committees in the country. Prior to her Institute tenure, Stanton worked in advertising and public relations for both private and public entities.
“I am very pleased to be a part of a national insurance trade association that truly works in cooperation with the state trades and other insurance entities,” Stanton commented. “Indiana has one of the best insurance environments in the country, in part, due to the coordination of the property/casualty insurance industry’s resources and agendas. I look forward to carrying that spirit of cooperation with me to the Northeast.”
