Our morning sessions will focus on the storm activity of recent years including the impacts of hurricanes/tropical storms, microbursts, inland flooding, tornado activity and hail in Pennsylvania. A meteorologist will discuss these trends, and we will explore the insurance industry response including wind/storm deductibles, shortened hail reporting periods, ACV roof endorsements, and activities aimed to identify fraud. We will explore new products to address coverage for inland flooding exposures (not traditionally impacted by flooding) as well as analytic tools available to identify properties and/or buildings that are most susceptible to these issues often caused by water runoff tied to urban sprawl.
Our afternoon sessions will provide insights into agency/company relationships. We will explore the growing trend of “aggregators” and feature a panel with representatives from various aggregators to discuss their business model and the role of mutual companies in their operations. Our second session will include a representative from an agency trade association to discuss the current topics important to them and provide insight into how mutual companies can best serve the needs of our agents and policyholders.
