Meet Francie Stocking, NIIA Director and Membership/Education Committee

Francie Stocking.jpgFrancie Stocking, Sr. Vice President - NFP Property & Casualty, Las Vegas Office

NFP Property & Casulaty is a national property and casualty firm. The Vegas office focus is on Habitational Accounts.

Francie has enjoyed 22 years in the insurance industry while balancing her work and family life. Francie is married and has 4 children, 3 grandchildren, but says more importantly has 2 beautiful labs; Goldie and Shyner. She enjoys spending time with her pups while also hiking, running, camping and anything that is outdoors.

She has been involved as a member for many years with the association and even served as the President to the local Independent Insurance Agents of Southern Nevada when we had a local chapter in Las Vegas.  Francie has always wanted to be involved at the state level as she feels our carrier have a lot of respect for the Board of Directors. The involvement NIIA has with the carriers is amazing!   I also have enjoyed listening and being involved with the Legislative committee.  There is much more that happens behind the scenes than I was aware. Being included with the communications between the committee and the lobbyist, Jim Wadhams, Esq.  over the years has allowed me to learn quite a bit about the legislative process.
