Jose Palacios - Peninsula Insurance Bureau - What is the value of being a member of the Windstorm Insurance Network? There is tremendous value in knowing who is who and who is doing what throughout our industry. The Windstorm Insurance Network is a unique platform which brings a large cross section of practitioners together.”

It also introduces attendees to key suppliers and promotes dialog among colleagues and competitors. No wonder it attracts over 1,000 people every year.”

Andy Rock, Defense Attorney, The Rock Law Group – “The Windstorm Insurance Conference has been an excellent investment of time and effort over the years.

Tony D’Amico, Public Adjuster, Principal, Goodman Gable Gould – “Aside from the fact that the conference represents a tremendous educational forum, a major benefit is the harmonious interaction between representatives of the insurers and representatives of the policyholders. This interaction promotes the development of professional relationships which lend themselves to the mutual goal of achieving a prompt and equitable settlement for both sides."
