Darin M. Reffitt, director of Demand Generation and Campaign Management at EIS Group Ltd., a provider of core systems to insurers, has been named New Volunteer of the Year by the Insurance Accounting and Systems Association, Incorporated (IASA).
Mr. Reffitt currently chairs the IASA Social Media Subcommittee, a part of the Marketing and Communications Committee. He began as a volunteer with IASA in September 2012 and was appointed to lead IASA’s social media efforts in May 2013. Over his first year in that role, IASA grew its Twitter followers by over 100%, launched corporate LinkedIn and Instagram sites, and created a formal social media policy and process that enables IASA Chapters across the U.S. to directly leverage the power of the IASA’s social media feeds. He also participates in IASA’s Solution Provider Enrichment Committee.
Each year, IASA honors a new volunteer who stands apart in demonstrating a commitment to furthering IASA’s goals. Mr. Reffitt was formally recognized for his volunteer efforts at the 2014 IASA Educational Conference and Business Show in Indianapolis in June.
“Thanks to his contributions, we have worked social media into every aspect of IASA,” said Chuck Gunkel, vice president of volunteer development for IASA. “IASA’s presence on outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ has grown substantially thanks in large part to Darin’s work as an IASA volunteer.”
