NITF Director Elected to National Board

October 20, 2003

National Insurance Task Force (NITF) Director Todd Pittman has been elected to the Board of Directors of the National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA).

The NAAIA works to create a viable support system for African-American insurance professionals to enhance careers in the industry. The organization’s mission is to strengthen the presence of African-Americans in the profession and create opportunities that lead to competition on a more level playing field. The group holds educational forums and professional development seminars to reach out to all directly and indirectly involved in the insurance industry.

As a board member, Pittman will take a leadership role in broadening the association’s reach with insurers, from executives to agents.

“African-American insurers can play a significant role in bringing affordable and accessible insurance products to our nation’s lower-income and minority communities,” said Pittman. “This echoes the mission of the National Insurance Task Force and our objective to improve insurance services in lower-income and minority communities, and I think this will be a very productive partnership.”

“Mr. Pittman’s participation on the board will help usher NAAIA into a new phase,” said its board president, Roosevelt Haywood III. “NAAIA’s plans for the next year include developing a national on-line registry of Black insurance professionals and incorporating more local chapters.”

Anyone interested in developing a local NAAIA chapter should contact Jerald Tillman, program chairman at, or Kiana Player, the NAAIA’s public relations manager, at
