Outgoing S.C. Governor To Assume NALC Position
Gov. Jim Hodges of South Carolina has been named executive director of the National Alliance of Life Companies, Rosemont, Ill., a spokeswoman for the NALC confirmed Thursday.
Although the governors office had no immediate comment on the announcement, NALC spokeswoman Dawn Bergsma said Gov. Hodges would assume the position sometime after he leaves office at the end of his term, which expires Jan. 15.
Hodges, a Democrat, was defeated in November by his Republican gubernatorial challenger, Mark Sanford.
Though the governors press office said that Hodges had made no formal decision about his plans after he leaves office, Bergsma confirmed that he has accepted the NALCs top appointed position from its board of directors.
The NALC is a national trade organization with more than 200 member companies.
