We are members at Windstorm Insurance Network for over 6 years


The Windstorm Insurance Network, Inc. (WIND) was officially incorporated the same day Hurricane Floyd hit the North Carolina coast: September 16, 1999.

It was a fitting start date for an educational association created for property and windstorm insurance claims industry professionals.

Although many hurricanes have blown since 1999, one thing has remained constant: WIND is the only member association to bring together both defense and policyholder professionals together to connect, engage, and learn about important topics in the property/windstorm insurance claims industry.

WIND Appraiser Certification Program®

The WIND Certified Appraiser Program® was introduced in 2012 to enhance the professionalism and ethics of property insurance appraisers. Each year, hundreds of property insurance claims professionals complete the four-hour WIND Certified Appraiser® program taught annually at the Windstorm Insurance Conference.

WIND Umpire Certification Program®

The WIND Umpire Certification Program was introduced in 2003 and is the first curriculum devoted to training professionals who serve as umpires in property insurance appraisals. The program is a valuable tool for those wanting to further their understanding of the appraisal process.
