The Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on Thursday, March 23, 2017, and was well attended by a cross-section of keen and committed insurance professionals. Since being launched in 1997, the Institute has developed a powerful education programme, which has enabled very many Vincentians to obtain professional qualifications after receiving excellent training courses and examinations right here in SVG.

Tanisha Mills, Melecia Alexander, Nancy Ferrari, Kerri Foster, Monisia De Grads Ashton, Dwight DaSilva, Kim Haydock and Terron Davies. Three distinctions, to Tanisha Mills, Nancy Ferrari and Kim Haydock, were included in these awards.
Energetic training courses, including Insurance Fraud and Risk Management, are planned for the near future together with regular semi-formal meetings where members can interact with skilled Vincentians in a range of risk-related disciplines.
The new executive continues the work of outgoing president Michele Morthely, and is led by Kim Haydock (president), Nancy Ferrari (vice-president), Sharlene Wyllie (secretary), Simonne Goodluck (education), Terron Davies (librarian), Jexol Skinner (social activities) and Joe Sheridan(PRO).
