Portland, ME – More than 40 employees of The MEMIC Group received their Workers’ Compensation Professional (WCP®) diplomas at the American Society of Workers’ Compensation Professionals (AmCOMP) Annual Fall Meeting in New York City.
“As workers’ compensation specialists, we emphasize the importance of workforce education with our policyholders,” says MEMIC President and CEO Michael P. Bourque. “Providing the best service comes from having the most knowledgeable employees. We are proud to have more employees achieve their WCP® designation than any other company.” Bourque noted that more than sixty MEMIC employees obtained their WCP® in 2017.
AmCOMP awards certifications to insurance professionals who exhibit integrity and excellence in workers’ compensation through qualifying work experience and completion of a rigorous 11-week core curriculum followed by a final examination. Professionals who achieve the WCP® designation have proven their knowledge of the workers’ compensation field, including history, best practices, coverage areas, claims, risk management, pricing and employer liability insurance, among other areas of specialty. MEMIC employees attended the AmCOMP program through a partnership with the University of Southern Maine (USM). Dana Kerr, USM’s Associate Professor of Risk Management and Insurance, said MEMIC’s President Emeritus John T. Leonard was very important to the growth of the WCP® designation beyond the New York City area.
MEMIC’s new WCP® designees are from their Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida offices:
