Job Title: Meeting Coordinator

Location: Indianapolis, In


The National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC) has an excellent full-time opportunity for an individual to perform support functions for our Events Team. This job will help the Events Team in the Member Development Department with the many details that go in to creating a top-quality event such as working with speakers, managing presentation materials, being on-site to assist with the assigned meetings, and more. This position will also coordinate virtual event details, maintain business records and history for events, handle budgeting and reconciliation, serve as the first line of contact with our members for event registration and questions, prepare lists for marketing efforts, and handle many more detail-oriented tasks.

So, what is NAMIC? We are a national business trade association that works in support of and offers services to the property/casualty insurance industry in the U.S. and Canada. In continuous operation since 1895, NAMIC offers a variety of services to our member companies including outstanding educational events. (For more information on NAMIC, please go to www.namic.org.)

What kind of skills would be useful in this job? If you’re the one in your group of friends who is considered to be very organized and the “responsible one,” works a plan from start to finish easily, likes a fast pace, and enjoys doing a great job behind the scenes to make something happen, you may have what it takes to do this kind of job! Being really organized is critical as is being able to make things happen on time following a timeline that sometimes starts up to 12 months prior to an event. You have to be able to manage multiple tasks at once and adapt to changes in priority easily, be a good communicator, and be able to work independently (while still part of a team).

We need strong customer service skills, creative thinking for new solutions and ideas, as well as the ability to take direction, receive constructive feedback and make changes as needed. Being independent and self-sufficient is important. A professional demeanor, the ability to learn from various situations for improved performance and increased responsibility, integrity, and personal maturity are all keys to being successful. And we love people who are upbeat and have a great sense of humor, too!

What qualifications are needed? Some experience supporting a meeting planning function, such as working in the hospitality field or working for someone who plans events would be ideal. Strong computer skills in MS Office, Excel, and Adobe, as well as database management are definitely important. A bachelor’s degree is preferred. Because this job works in support of events, you need to be able to lift at least 25 pounds, bend to the floor and reach above your head. This job does require some overnight travel three to four times per year, typically with advance notice, but you would need to be available to provide back-up assistance in emergencies. Having a clear criminal background, valid Indiana driver’s license and acceptable MVR are all required. (Please note: This position doesn’t plan the meetings, it supports the meeting planners. However, as an association committed to developing talent, the right person can have the opportunity to grow in this role and learn about the many facets of planning events from top-notch meeting planners.)

NAMIC offers a nice compensation and benefits package with this position that includes access to group medical, dental and vision; a matched 401(k) plan; one paid day to volunteer with the charity of your choice; generous paid vacation; and more! We have a friendly yet professional work atmosphere where everyone enjoys working hard for the good of our members. We’re a recent winner in the Best Places to Work in Indiana award and our turnover is low for a reason. If you’re interested in this position, please send a resume and cover letter indicating your salary expectations to Joy Klinker, HR Coordinator, at MeetingCoordinator@namic.org.

This individual travels to conventions, conferences and seminars around the U.S. to promote NAMIC Insurance Solutions offerings to NAMIC members, prospective members, and policyholders (approximately 3-5 overnight stays a month).

Policies are then underwritten by the in-house NAMIC Insurance Company (NAMICO).

What skills are needed in this job? Strong customer service skills and enjoying talking with people in general are very important. In this job you’re not just talking to a prospect, you’re speaking with a valued member of our organization or a member’s business partner. Being organized and detail-oriented matters. This position works closely with the insurance company staff in NAMICO, so being a good team player who knows how to establish positive internal relationships is necessary. This job makes a first impression on a regular basis, so being comfortable dressed in professional attire and having a professional, yet friendly, demeanor is vital. The best candidates will have a comfort level making presentations before groups and discussing technical insurance information in a down-to-earth way. (We encourage insurance education and the hired candidate will have the opportunity to take education on professional liability insurance and pursue designations such as the Registered Professional Liability Underwriter (RPLU), which of course the organization pays for.)

What qualifications would be good? The best candidates will have several years of experience in commercial lines (if not professional liability) working in a customer service representative or account manager capacity in an insurance agency, insurance company or broker/wholesaler operation. An active Indiana (commercial p/c) license is needed, as is the ability to be licensed in multiple states. A Bachelor’s degree is preferred as is a proven interest in pursuing insurance education. You would need to be comfortable and physically capable of traveling by air and car approximately 5 days a month (including overnight stays) around the country. A valid driver’s license with an acceptable MVR and a clear criminal record are required.

So, what kind of person might like this job and working at NAMIC? If you like a stable situation that brings you into contact with customers you will enjoy working with, as well as having top quality, dedicated co-workers… If you like being challenged by your work and enjoy having the chance to broaden your experiences, such as only a smaller operation allows… If you like to work with people that have a sense of humor and work hard, but also have fun working together… If you’re upbeat, optimistic, and a real “people person” looking to further develop and polish your skill sets… If the idea of working for an organization that has won a spot on the Best Places to Work in Indiana list several times recently is appealing… This job and this place might be right for you!

What else? This job comes with an excellent base salary and benefits package! Group medical, dental, and vision are available as is a matched 401(k) with immediate entry options, a generous paid vacation allowance, and more are part of the package. This position could work from home one day a week after getting in the swing of things and work life balance is important to us. For confidential consideration, please send a resume and cover letter that indicates salary expectations to Megan Trainor, Human Resource Director, at AccountManager@namic.org.
