Windstorm Conference 2018
Following this year's historic hurricane season, it has been great seeing and catching up with some of the best of the best in the property insurance claims industry! The Windstorm Insurance Network (WIND) is a professional association founded in 1999 and the organization offers elite education, industry insight and unique networking opportunities with representatives from all facets of the property insurance claims industry. This year, I served on an expert panel, "Where Wind Meets Fire" speaking about windstorms and how they exacerbate loss and damages resulting from fire, smoke, soot and ash in many different States like Gatlinburg, Tennessee, many parts of California and even on I-4 driving over from Tampa to Orlando.
Awards were presented to an industry legend, Ms. Janet Brown who recently retired and will be missed as well as former National Hurricane Center Director, Dr. Max Mayfield. Our keynote speaker, Frank Abagnale of the movie Catch Me If You Can shared a very interesting life story and spoke about fraud, security and cybercrime.
To my professional colleagues; if there is a conference to be at, The Windstorm Insurance Network Conference is it. Thank you to those 1,000+ professionals who have taken time out of their busy schedule helping Hurricane Imra, Harvey and Maria policyholder to increase their learning. Tutwiler & Associates Public Adjusters is proud that 10 of our firm's busy adjusters took the time to fly in from all over to attend and learn…… and even settle a few claims during the process! Look for more from Windstorm where we will pass along lessons learned and the latest trends we garnered from the conference.
