Lynn Davis Memorial Scholarship


The Lynn Davis Memorial Award was named in memory of a well-respected member in the Marine industry and for some... was a very dear friend.

For over 20 years Lynn Davis was involved in Associations such as the National Association of Insurance Women and Association of Marine Underwriters of British Columbia (now the Marine Insurance Association of BC). 

She was the first woman to join the Association in the early 80’s, where she led the various Chairs in the Committee such as Cargo, Social, and Underwriting..  She was Treasurer and ultimately led her to become President of the association from 2002 to 2004.  During her term as President, the scholarship was inaugurated as an initiative to offer scholarship to Member’s families. This kind initiative is what Lynn was truly all about.

Sadly In 2006, Lynn passed away after a battle with cancer. This scholarship was then re-named in her honour, commemorating her contributions to both the Association and the industry.
