Four Appalachian State University Risk Management & Insurance (RMI) majors, plus Brantley Risk & Insurance Center Associate Director Greg Langdon, participated in the re-scheduled 2015 IIANC InsurExpo in Durham on April 8-9. At the Expo the students networked with Independent agents and industry reps, and participated in information sessions and meetings with industry professionals.
During the second day of the event, Greg Langdon formally recognized the IIANC as the "Founding Strategic Partner" of the Appalachian State Risk Management academic program through the Brantley Risk & Insurance Center. Langdon presented new Big I CEO Aubie Knight and members of the IIANC Board of Directors a sculpture commemorating the announcement and recognizing the more than 25 years of support between the Big I and AppState.
IIANC Chair Scott Evans added, "The IIANC is very proud of its partnership with the Brantley Risk & Insurance Center and the AppState RMI program. You can look at the leadership within our association and it doesn't take very long before you see the fingerprint of graduates of this nationally recognized program all over our Board of Directors, our committees, and in every area of leadership within the Big I. We look forward to many more years in partnership with our friends from Appalachian State."
