Brenda Cude, a professor in the financial planning, housing and consumer economics department, has been recognized by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners for more than two decades of service to consumers.
Cude, who received her Ph.D. from Purdue University, has represented consumer interests for more than 20 years and has served as a funded consumer representative since 1994.
She began serving on the NAIC Consumer Participation Board of Trustees since 1997 and is frequently called upon by state legislatures, state insurance departments as well as numerous NAIC members to offer consumer perspectives at public hearings, conference calls, interim and national meetings.
“Brenda has been closely involved in the creation of many, if not all, of the NAIC’s buyer’s guides for consumers for various products,” NAIC president Monica Linden said. “She also has been involved in the drafting of regulatory best practices, white papers, consumer disclosures, model laws and regulations.”
Cude was recognized at the NAIC fall meeting in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
“The work of this group touches the lives of thousands and thousands of insurance consumers in all lines of insurance: property, health, disability, life, annuities,” Cude said. “I have gotten so much from it. To be acknowledged this way is very gratifying.”
