BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Alexandra Glickman entered the industry in 1983 working for Johnson & Higgins.

What would you change: "I would make industry regulations more uniform and logical so that clients, insurers and brokers are not at the whim of each state. There's tremendous redundancy in this current system which doesn't appear to benefit anyone but the individual state that imposes it."
