“The Risk Management Conference held each year has historically provided our key district personnel with the training needed to better understand, not only all of our coverages, but also implement measures to help minimize claims and losses.  I anticipate this conference will continue to keep us current on laws and various issues as they relate to our different lines of coverage.”
