Business Editors

ADVISORY…for Monday-Wednesday (Feb. 4-6)


National Hurricane Center Director Max Mayfield and Florida Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher, will be among the highlight speakers at the Third Annual Windstorm Insurance Network Conference to be held February 4-6, 2002 at the Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The conference, which is co-sponsored by the Florida Windstorm Underwriting Association, is designed to provide a variety of workshops created on specific tracks for insurance agents, catastrophe adjusters, public adjusters, risk managers, engineers and other experts and counsel. It is hoped that by bringing together all of the segments of the insurance industry that deal with the impact of a windstorm, a greater understanding can be developed in dealing with Florida windstorm issues. Last year, approximately 650 people attended the three-day conference.

The conference will offer a lineup of keynote speakers and 30 professional workshops. Topics include mold and mildew, catastrophe claims, windstorm/hail damage, condo association risk analysis, code enforcement, overhead and profit, good faith claims handling, and more. Flood insurance seminars have been added to address the relationship between flood and wind claims. In addition continuing education credits will be offered by The Florida Bar, Florida Department of Insurance, RPA and CPCU. Certification programs will be offered by the Florida Windstorm Underwriting Association, National Flood Insurance Program and also Tower Hill Insurance Group.

Conference exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Sponsorships are available for breaks, lunches, the expo and the conference reception. The Conference Expo will be expanded to two days for 2002. This event is a great opportunity to learn more about the products and services displayed by companies.
