Vigilance Church Security Conference - Michael Boutot

Insurance/Workers Comp – Peter Persuitti and Michael Boutot 

What is adequate insurance? What are the critical factors for determining the best coverage and terms / conditions? How much is it price? How does the adage “you get what you pay for” work here? How does a church evaluate an agent or broker? What is the role of the Finance Council in insurance transactions? How might a church advocate its risk management position with underwriters? What is the impact of a mod study on your workers compensation and why is it important? What does it mean to endow your property & casualty insurance program? What are the advantages of pooling with others? What is a hard market and how does the local church best prepare for that?
