Our Blog Property & Casualty Speaking:

MAIAThis is the official blog of the Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents. Our goal here is to share the work of the MAIA and the Number One Insurance Agency and connect with our members and other insurance professionals.

About the Author Melissa Murphy:

I have worked for the Number One Agency since 2002, holding positions in the Workers’ Comp and Personal Umbrella departments before becoming the Lawyers’ Professional Liability Program Manager in 2004. I completed the CISR designation in 2004 and became a CIC in 2006.

In my life away from the office I have had a healthy interest in social media, and am active on several social media platforms. I believe that these tools can help people and businesses make connections, find answers and increase productivity.

I am excited to interact with other insurance professionals through this space. You can also connect with me on Twitter @maia_melissa or at LinkedIn.
