Lincoln, RI – August 30, 2021 – Edward “Ned” Blais, President of Blais Insurance, was recently recognized for professional leadership and advanced knowledge by the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors.

Blais was awarded a certificate of achievement after successfully maintaining the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation for 20 consecutive years. The CIC designation requires a rigorous annual continuing education update that ensures an insurance agent is up-to-date with the most current information in their field.

“The Certified Insurance Counselor Designation to me represents a commitment to the highest standards of excellence in the insurance industry. I am as honored to hold this designation today as I was when I first received it 20 years ago,” Blais said.

Blais’ ongoing allegiance and support of the CIC Program is a testament to the value he places on ‘real-world’ education and professional growth. “Your clients, associates, and the insurance profession as a whole benefit from such leadership and a strong commitment to continuing education,” said William J. Hold, MBA, CRM, CISR, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research.
