President’s Letter

January 15, 2018


It is my greatest delight for your continued trust and faith as I continue my second year as the President of the New York Claim Association.  After my first year I want to share with all of you my gratitude for the continued commitment from the Board of Directors and the support of our membership.  The organization has continued to evolve and grow stronger largely due to the efforts of both the  Board of Directors and our thriving membership base. Our membership is strong. Our events are well attended. We appear to be delivering on our core values: professional ethics and high standards, education and the advancement of our members.  We can always do more and look forward to that challenge in 2018.

We look forward to sharing another exciting and productive year with all of our members.  The New York Claim Association is marking its 104th year.  This is truly an accomplishment and a testament of the commitment of its devoted membership. We hope that you will consider joining your colleagues for breakfast at one of our workshops this year. They are a great opportunity to network with other claims professionals (or others in the industry) and stay abreast of any changes in the industry. Our next workshop will be held late February early March please check the website and look for an upcoming invitation.  Other events we are planning include another fantastic golf outing at the Cherry Valley Country Club on June 5th and our Holiday Gala which will once again be held at the beautiful Harvard Club.  Additionally, we will also bring back the successful 2017  “Meet the Board Event” again with an eye on hosting this function in the Fall.

If you are not already a member of the New York Claim Association, please consider joining. It is a great way to network and stay current with changes in the industry. If you are already a member, please consider bringing a non-member colleague as we help grow our membership.  If you would like to learn more about joining, please contact Tyisha Torres our Membership Chair at 516-322-8791 or myself at 516-330-1270 or email us at

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next workshop!

With our collective dedication, we can advance the goals of the New York Claim Association and remain on the forefront of the insurance industry.
