“We never take for granted the continued interest we see in Council membership,” said Ken Crerar, CEO of The Council. “We’re always exploring opportunities to develop new programs and resources, particularly in areas like talent development that are critical to the success of our member firms.”

In addition to expanding its membership, The Council welcomed several new sponsors to its Council Partners program, including Humana and PCF Insurance as Platinum Partners and Zywave as a Gold Partner.

“The caliber of Council Partner organizations and their commitment to our industry is unmatched,” said Robert J. Klonk, Chairman and CEO of Oswald – a Unison Risk Advisors Company, and The Council’s 2023 Board Chair. “Insurance is a relationship business and The Council’s flagship meetings are the premier platforms for convening market leaders to collaborate and develop solutions for our clients.”
