The board of the Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) has revamped LISA operations in a way that may reflect an increased interest in federal legislation and regulation.
The board has hired Association Management Strategies Inc. to run LISA, and moved LISA’s headquarters to Washington, from Orlando, Florida.
The board has also named Bryan Nicholson, association management veteran, to be the group’s new executive director.

Nicholson succeeds Darwin Bayston, who has been the group’s executive director since 2010. Nicholson has been the executive director of the GridWise Alliance, a group of organizations with an interest in America’s electricity distribution grid, according to the Association Management Strategies website.
Nicholson has also been executive director of the Sorptive Minerals Institute, a trade association for producers and marketers of products made of absorben clay minerals.
He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree in international affairs from the New School.
