President to Host Continuing Education Panel on "Taking Insurance Claims Green" at 20th Annual Windstorm Conference
August 9, 2018
Econautics' President John D. Wood, Esq. has been approved by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation to provide Continuing Education credit hours for his presentation at the 20th Annual Windstorm Conference in Orlando, Florida in February, 2019. John will present and moderate a panel on the subject, "Taking Insurance Claims Green."
John's presentation will include a review of several P&C insurance policies that offer additional coverages for the added cost of so-called "Green Upgrades" that allow property owners to rebuild sustainably and resilient properties after suffering catastrophic losses.
"After a massive storm, the built environment needs to change to be less vulnerable to the next major weather event. With increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events, catastrophes like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are going to visit again. Insurance can and should play a role in increasing our resilience, helping civilization adapt and evolve in the face of this growing physical risk," says John.
