TWIA’s Actuarial & Underwriting Committee and the Board will hold meetings in January to determine the Association’s statutorily required 1:100 probable maximum loss for the 2023 season, which will establish the minimum amount of reinsurance needed to meet its funding obligations.

The Board also directed staff to work with Gallagher Re to seek to replace expiring catastrophe bonds early using a replacement transaction recommended by Gallagher.

Additionally, the Board approved the 2023 operating budget and elected Board member Karen Guard to the vacant position of Board Secretary-Treasurer.

David Durden, TWIA’s General Manager, announced that Jessica Crass was appointed Vice President of Legal & Compliance. Crass previously served as the Association’s Vice President of Underwriting.
