ISO Vice President Art Cadorine Receives Legends Award at AMCOMP Annual Meeting

JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 30, 2009 — To recognize the extensive service of Arthur R. Cadorine to the workers' compensation insurance industry, the American Society of Workers' Comp Professionals (AMCOMP) presented the ISO executive with its Legends Award at its Annual Meeting and Conference in Las Vegas on March 26.

Cadorine has served with ISO and its predecessor organizations for more than 44 years. Currently, he leads ISO’s Information Acquisition, Development, and Service Department, with responsibility for ISO’s workers' compensation information products, reinsurance services, contractual and license products and development, and maintaining all statistical plans.

“The Legends Award recognizes Art’s extensive knowledge gained through life experience,” said Donald T. DeCarlo, AMCOMP chairman and president. “Art has shown a commitment to the workers' compensation/employers liability system by contributing time and effort and by fostering the efficiency of the system both inside and outside ISO.”

Cadorine is a member of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), where as chair of the data management and information committee, he made major contributions to the actuarial profession in the field of data management. In 2004, the CAS recognized Cadorine’s significant service and involvement with the Matthew Rodermund Service Award. He is a member of the American Academy of Actuaries.

He is a past member of the board of directors of the Insurance Accounting and Systems Association (IASA), which awarded him its president’s award in 2008 for significant volunteer contributions to supporting the mission of the association. He is also a past president of the Insurance Data Management Association (IDMA). In 2007, the IDMA awarded Cadorine the Gary Knoble Service Award for lifetime significant contributions to the data management profession.

“By heading committees and work groups and contributing to the development of many aspects of the workers' compensation/employers liability environment, Art has shared his experience, leadership, and commitment and has made a unique contribution to the field,” added DeCarlo. “We’re proud to recognize Art for his life-long outstanding achievements.”

Cadorine graduated from St. John’s University with a bachelor of arts degree and serves on the AMCOMP board of directors.
