    Last week, the Association’s Executive Director, Sonny Brasfield, was re-elected as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for County Reinsurance, Ltd. (CRL), a company whose sole mission since 1997 has been to serve and meet the needs of county risk pools across the nation. Through the Association’s involvement with CRL, the ACCA Self-Funded Insurance Programs have been able to partner with similar county-sponsored funds across America and obtain re-insurance, a successful approach that has played a major role in the Funds’ financial soundness.
