Sandy DeLong, + By Jonathan Wright Sandy DeLong has seen a lot of changes since she entered the in- surance industry eight years ago. Enhanced computer programs, pub- lic education, legalities, and a vari- ety of other changes have kept her busy in remaining up-to-date with numerous insurance companies. Mrs DeLong began work April 11 with the American Automobile Asso- ciation (AAA) Travel Agency in Le- wisburg as its insurance agent, a new position. She continues dealing with changes by training and practi- cal experience. "People are now buying more in- surance than they used to," she said. "With the growing number of lawsuits we see today, people are more afraid of being unprotected. They're also more knowledgeable today about insurance--and the types they really need." Computers have also brought about change in the way insurance work is done, according to Mrs De- Long. "They make it easier and .faster to get rate quotes, lists of clients, and other information--they make things much more convenient, and there's less paperwork, too." 1 I I The Mountain Messenger is now published I I THURSDAY I I I I I I I I fiZ , c t I I I I I INDIVIDUAL, COUPLE, and GROUP COUNSELING I I I I i i 207W Main Street {9/14 ~ .......
