WCIRB Outreach to Agents and Brokers at InsurFEST 2014
November 26, 2014
In this edition: A recap of WCIRB at InsurFEST 2014 held in San Francisco.
The WCIRB was among the exhibitors at InsurFEST 2014, presented by the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of California (IIABCal). There were nearly 300 in attendance at the event, which was held at the Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco on November 6-8. The WCIRB and IIABCal have been working together to provide online workers’ comp education to agents and brokers, and exhibiting at InsurFEST gave us the opportunity to meet many in the agent and broker community face-to-face.
Bill Mudge (WCIRB President and CEO) speaks at InsurFEST 2014.
WCIRB President and CEO Bill Mudge was one of the featured speakers, giving a presentation titled “Becoming a Customer-Centric Organization.” Bill shared advice and insights gained from his more than 30 years' experience in the workers’ comp system and from his leadership of the WCIRB's own transformation as well as his co-founding of CompWest Insurance.
During the tradeshow, the WCIRB hosted two “ask the expert” sessions and provided immediate answers to classification and experience rating questions. We also distributed USB flash drives containing the WCIRB’s Agent and Broker Toolkit, a quick reference for agents and brokers with links to helpful resources on www.wcirb.com.
