Eleven CLM fellows will be attending CLM’s 2021 Annual Conference this month with the help of CLM’s new scholarship program, funded by CLM member firm Callahan & Fusco.

The program was established in 2020 to help provide travel costs for those interested in attending one of three events: CLM’s 2021 Annual Conference, the 2021 Claims College, or CLM’s 2021 October Focus. Each winner receives $1,000 to help offset expenses related to transportation or professional development. Complimentary registration to the event they choose to attend is also provided.

“We’ve been a part of CLM for a long time, and we want to continue to support the organization,” said Christopher Fusco, managing partner at Callahan & Fusco LLC, when the scholarship program was initially announced. “We’ve always put a lot of effort into supporting CLM, and, in a sense, we’ve grown up together, since our firm has expanded from a regional firm based in New Jersey and New York to a national presence across seven states, including Florida and Georgia. We want to continue to watch the CLM grow and be a part of it.”

For CLM’s 2021 Annual Conference, the following CLM fellows were selected to receive scholarships:

•    Victor Hernandez, SIU & Subrogation Manager, CSE Insurance Company

•    Wes Seabolt, Claims Adjuster, Sedgwick

•    Margaret Ann Erife, Claims Team Leader, ESIS
