SDPAA Welcomes Becky Brunsing as its new Member Services Representative!
The South Dakota Public Assurance Alliance (SDPAA) is pleased to announce the hiring of Becky Brunsing to serve as the SDPAA’s Member Services Representative.
For the past twenty years, Becky has served as the City Administrator/Finance Officer for the City of Wagner, SD. She has served as President and on the Board of Directors of the South Dakota Municipal League, and she recently served as the Chair of the SDML Audit Committee. She has also served as President of the South Dakota Government Finance Officers Association (SDGFOA). She was the SDGFOA’s Finance Officer of the Year in 2014. She fills other leadership roles within her community, including currently serving as the President-Elect of her local Rotary Club.
Becky is a Wagner native. She and her husband Mike have three children and live on her family's homestead which recently turned 125 years old. Their son is the fifth generation to farm the homestead. In her spare time, she helps on the farm and enjoys gardening and canning all the produce. There is always a fresh jar of pickles at the Brunsing household! Her passion for public service is shared by her husband Mike who serves as the Superintendent of Lawrence Township.
In 2017 SDPAA Members first elected Becky to serve on their Board of Directors. The SDPAA benefitted from her stewardship until she recently resigned to accept full-time employment with the SDPAA. We will miss her service on the SDPAA Board but welcome her as part of our internal team.
Becky’s passion for public service began when she served as a sales tax auditor for the State of South Dakota from 1990 to 1993. She then served her community by providing financial and human resource management for a local health care system and for a local accounting firm before she began her two decades of service to the City of Wagner. She holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and brings a wealth of governmental and financial knowledge to the SDPAA. We are excited she is joining our team!
Becky looks forward to continuing her relationships with cities as well as getting better acquainted with the counties, townships, conservation districts, and other SDPAA Members while serving your coverage needs. She shares your enthusiasm for public service and will eagerly assist you in furthering your public service mission.
If you have any questions or would like your public entity to explore becoming a Member of the SDPAA, please contact Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org or the SDPAA at 800-658-3633 option 2 or by email at email@example.com.
Codington County joined the SDPAA in 1989 and truly appreciates everything SDPAA has done to assist the County. In July 2017 Codington County incurred damage to numerous County owned vehicles due to hail damage. SDPAA was on the spot with an adjuster and made prompt payment to the County for the damages incurred by the hail event. The staff at SDPAA is the best to work with and you can present them with any question and they will answer you quickly and/or direct you to the correct party to resolve any issues or claim questions. Codington County looks forward to working well into the future with SDPAA.Cindy Brugman, Codington County Auditor
