Dear Visitors: 

While we have all been impacted in the way that we live and work, we remain cautiously optimistic that this disruption will be coming to an end sooner rather than later.  

  

As each of us navigates unique and evolving  challenges, we hope that everyone is healthy and safe.

We will continue to educate, update our website and post on LinkedIn while staying connected. Please reach out with any questions or in general.

We look forward to meeting in person once again!

 

Sincerely,

Board of Directors

ABOUT US

 

 

Women In Surety (WIS) was created in November 2016 to form the first cohesive group for women in the surety industry to fill an industry gap, bring great minds together for support, mentorship and intellectual challenge, and to network with industry professionals. In January  2017, a Board of Directors consisting of senior surety representatives from all constituencies (surety companies and brokers in both the contract and commercial surety spaces) was formalized. By March of the same year, the group hosted its first event.

 

We continue to grow our membership with regularly planned educational and networking events, along with a mentorship program. While we began in the Northeast, we look to expand nationally and present opportunities for surety women everywhere.

We welcome your interest and support.

GROUP NEWS

  • Education Committee - We thank all of our presenters who participated in our educational series for an in-depth look at the Surety Market in South America relative to market conditions, unique obligations, and current events during the month of March. In the event you missed one of these events, the recordings will be located in our Photo Gallery for up to 30-days.

  • Events Committee - Our January 21, 2021 Kick-Off Event facilitated by TriviaHub was a great start to the year! In addition, a number of people Zoomed-In for our "Stay Strong for Surety!" fitness event with Lynn Schubert on February 17, 2021. It was a great way to move and stay engaged with each other during the wintery months! Stay tuned for upcoming events. 

  • Membership & Communications Committee - Lots of things are happening this year! With membership benefits and dues defined for implementation effective July 1, 2021, the Board determined it was necessary to create a stand-alone Membership Committee. Membership will focus on communicating our new membership structure, the value proposition membership offers, and formalizing a membership outreach initiative. We are in process of electing a Chair and for this committee and adding committee members.

  • Mentorship Committee - The 2020 Mentoring Program launched in June with 24 participants. Each year we grow on the experiences from the prior year and make enhancements to the program. The opportunity to network and focus on career goals is as important as ever. A Mentee/Mentor Trivia Night was held on December 17, 2020 to connect, round out the year and have some fun!
