Board of Directors

About the NIIC Board of Directors
Because of the tremendous growth of the National Insurance Industry Council campaign over the past 37 years, a new, smaller National Insurance Council Board leadership structure has been established to more efficiently and effectively manage the long term health of the insurance industry fundraising effort.
This group is comprised of great leaders within the insurance industry who currently serve as City of Hope NIIC Advisory and Executive Committee members, the Spirit of Life Committee Chair and Regional Committee Chairs. The board's other roles include the selecting of future Spirit of Life Honorees and the recruitment of new board members. Additional members may be added in the future as deemed appropriate by the Board.
