Past WAMIC Chairs

It is believed that efforts to organize the mutual insurance industry in Wisconsin date back to its origins in the 19th century. The earliest record of an annual convention is in 1913, but our records prior to the 1960’s are very incomplete. We do, however, have a list of the past WAMIC Chairs dating to 1949 when the Association was formally incorporated.
