WASHINGTON, D.C. - The American Association of Public Insurance Adjusters' [AAPIA], Board

"I'm excited to get involved on a national level to further the public adjusting industry," Yemm
The AAPIA Board is excited to work with someone with such a depth of experience and ability.
Yemm has been involved with AAPIA since 2009 and began as a public adjuster in 1984. Yemm
is also the president of the Mid-Atlantic Association of Public Insurance Adjusters [MAPIA], which
term of office ends Spring 2020. As president of MAPIA, Yemm provided the leadership to
expand and professionalize the organization, and AAPIA looks forward to Paul applying those
talents to AAPIA.
"Back in 1984, there were under 100 public adjusters in Pennsylvania and today there are several
thousand," Yemm said.
Yemm is licensed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Florida and is making strides to

Dr. Michael Capilli served as AAPIA president for three years and will now be taking over as Chief
Legislative Officer. In his new role, Capilli will work with policyholder attorneys, state regulators,
state legislators and United Policyholders to advocate for legislation and regulation that benefits
"This is a critical time to take on this engaging role," Capilli said. "We want to be as active as
possible in a time where insurance companies are offering new policies that deceive the public
into thinking they have the best policies while removing coverages that policyholders think they
have." With these recent moves, AAPIA looks forward to the ongoing success of all of its projects
in the coming year.
