Val VanGorder of Bailey Place Insurance was recently recognized for professional leadership and advanced knowledge by the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors.

Mrs. VanGorder was awarded a certificate of achievement recognizing five consecutive years of successfully maintaining the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation. The CIC designation requires an annual continuing education update ensuring that her education is always up-to-date and relevant.

Val’s ongoing allegiance and support of the CIC Program is testament to the value she places on “real world” education and professional growth. “Your clients, associates and the insurance profession as a whole benefit from such leadership and a strong commitment to continuing education,” stated William J. Hold, MBA, CRM, CISR, President & CEO of the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research.

“Val has been a true asset to our agency, and our entire community,” said Bailey Place Insurance President Steve Franco. “Our agency puts an emphasis on continual professional development, and nobody provides a better example of this than Val.” 

The CIC Program is nationally recognized as the premier continuing education program for insurance professionals, with programs offered in 50 states and Puerto Rico. In addition to her CIC designation, Val has earned and maintained her Certified Insurance Service Representative national designation (CISR), her Certified Professional Insurance Agent Designation (CPIA), has completed the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) courses to sell flood insurance and is certified in NYS to offer Medicare Advantage and Supplement Plans.
