It’s been an honor for me to lead AASCIF as president for the past
two years—I can’t believe the time went by so fast! But I look
forward to staying actively involved in the organization.
We’ve been fortunate to have two great AASCIF conferences and other
events sponsored by the AASCIF Standing Committees during the past couple of
years. Thanks to the AASCIF Executive Committee and the AASCIF CEOs for their
support, especially to Russ Oliver, past president of AASCIF, for his involvement
and mentorship. Congratulations to Dennis Smith, president and CEO of Missouri
Employers Mutual Insurance Co., who was elected as the 2009-2010 AASCIF president.
The organization is in great hands. I also look forward to working with the
AASCIF Executive Committee as past president.
A special thanks goes to the incredibly talented Pinnacol staff who’ve
worked behind the scenes during the past two years. They’re ensuring
a seamless transition of AASCIF to the Missouri fund.
And for those of you who enjoyed my ski jumping at Utah Olympic Park, I’ll
come clean and tell you that it really wasn’t me. But it was a fun prank
to pull, and I’m sure I’ll be hearing about it for years to come.
Pinnacol looks forward to staying engaged with AASCIF in the future, and I
hope to see many of you at future AASCIF events.
I wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
