Since 1908, Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro has been guiding clients through the unpredictable territory of preparing and settling insurance claims. In 1985 we, along with a group of leading public adjusting firms in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, foresaw the need for an international network of highly skilled public adjusters who could bring specific expertise to servicing any type of loss, anywhere, at any time. Adjusters International was the result.

Steve Surace, CPA, CFF, MBA, Chief Operating Officer of Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro and Chief Financial Officer of Adjusters International, recently spoke on the importance of volunteering within your community. The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants Conference for Young CPAs: NextGen was held on June 6th, and focused on career development specifically for young financial professionals. As skilled volunteer work is a topic near to Surace’s heart (he sits on the board of several community groups, including the United Way, and is a member of his church’s finance committee), Surace presented his session on “How to Use Your Skills to Give Back to the Community.” Throughout this session, Surace gave many examples of ways that CPAs can assist their local non-profit organizations, who are in dire need of financial volunteers. With recent changes to New York State’s non-profit laws that call for more active financial oversight, it is even more important to the success of these non-profits to have CPA volunteers that they can call on.
Surace stressed that volunteering is a major component of professional development for all CPAs, and especially so for those who are just starting out in their careers. “By volunteering, you can be involved in a lot of high-level conversations that can add so much value,” said Surace. “This is a great way to develop skill sets at an early age.”

Karl Denison, C.P.P.A., Executive Vice President and Principal of Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International (GGG/AI), has been elected as President of the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) for 2014-2015. Since joining NAPIA in 1983, Denison has served on numerous committees and has taken many leadership positions within the Association, most recently serving as First Vice President for the past year. As President, Denison will be active in all facets of NAPIA, including the legislative, education and membership committees.
As a licensed public adjuster, Denison has been handling property insurance claims on behalf of policyholders since 1982. He attained the designation Certified Professional Public Adjuster (C.P.P.A.) from NAPIA in 1990. In addition to his role as Executive Vice President of GGG/AI, Denison is also the GGG/AI Catastrophe Team leader and in this capacity organized their response to many large property loss events, including the 2004 hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan & Jeanne; the 2005 hurricanes Katrina and Rita; the 2008 hurricanes Gustav and Ike; and Super Storm Sandy in 2012.
Over the past 63 years, three generations of GGG/AI principals have served in leadership roles within NAPIA, starting with William Goodman—founding member of GGG/AI—who served as the first NAPIA President from 1951-1957. Since then, six others from GGG/AI have served: Norman Goodman, Myron Schwartz, William R. Goodman, Harvey Goodman, Randy Goodman, and now Karl Denison. From the very beginning of NAPIA, GGG/AI has worked hand in hand with the Association to create continuing education opportunities for its members, to support legislation regarding licensing criteria, and to elevate the public adjusting profession as a whole.
“I am pleased to be voted in as President of NAPIA,” says Denison. “This is a very high honor, especially considering I have been elected by my peers, and in some cases my competitors, in the public adjusting field. I look forward to serving all the members for the next year.”
Founded in 1951, the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters promotes the highest standards of professional education, conduct and ethics in the field of public insurance adjusting. NAPIA’s members are committed to working in the best interest of their client—the policyholder—and to conducting business with honesty and integrity.
