IMU’s Potter and Buffa Earn AMIM Designation
July 8, 2020

Congratulations to IMU's Ben Potter and Joel Buffa, both of whom have recently earned their Associate in Marine Insurance Management (AMIM) designations. Potter and Buffa, both located in California, utilized their recent remote work situations to focus on the coursework to complete the designations and their hard work has paid off!

AMIM is the Insurance Institute of America’s professional designation for marine insurance professionals. The AMIM is designed to deepen the understanding of marine insurance for those who frequently advise clients in marine insurance cases. The AMIM’s areas of expertise include ocean marine insurance, inland marine insurance, principles of risk management and insurance, insurance company operations, legal environment of insurance and management. AMIM candidates gain improved knowledge about how marine insurance covers the damage or loss of ships, cargo, hulls, terminals, shipyards or any property by which cargo is acquired, transferred or held between the points of origin and final destination.

In addition to his AMIM, Joel hopes to have the last of his Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation exams completed this summer as well.  We wish him the best of luck!
