Boison Chosen New Vice President-International
Chicago, Il.LeRoy A. Boison, Jr., has been elected the first CAS vice president-international. The CAS Board of Directors established the new vice president position on September 17, 1999 to oversee international activities. It was also at this meeting that Boison was elected.
This action by the Board follows changes to the CAS Constitution approved by a voting of the Fellows in July 1999 that authorized the Board to determine the number and duties of the vice presidents (see story, page 14).
The vice president-international is responsible for the management/supervision of CAS international activity. Boison will coordinate the activities of three new committees: International Oversight, IAA Liaison, and International Issues. The existing International Relations Committee will be discharged. Other responsibilities of the new vice president include assuring that the CAS responds appropriately to international requests for assistance, representing the international perspective to the Executive Council and Board of Directors, representing the CAS at foreign meetings as appropriate, and providing periodic status reports.
Boison is senior vice president-insurance services for Insurance Services Office, Inc. in New York.
