PORTLAND, ME, November 28, 2017  – More than sixty MEMIC employees received their Workers' Compensation Professional (WCP®) diplomas at the American Society of Workers' Compensation Professionals (AmCOMP) Annual Fall Meeting in New York City.

With the addition of 2017’s graduates, more than a third of the employees at workers' compensation specialist The MEMIC Group now have achieved their WCP® designation, more than any other company in both percentage and in total numbers. In 2016, forty three employees earned their WCP® designation. MEMIC also has six times the industry average of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters (CPCUs).

"As a specialist in workers’ compensation, we take the education and development of our employees very seriously," says MEMIC President and CEO Michael P. Bourque.
