FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA October 6, 2020 – The FAIR Foundation, a Florida-based non-profit and champion for creating safer, stronger and more resilient communities through consumer education and empowerment, announced today that it will partner with real estate and insurance leaders to address flood insurance coverage concerns during the FAIR Foundation Virtual Conference Series- Building a Culture of Preparedness.
Lisa Miller, Florida’s former Deputy Insurance Commissioner will moderate the virtual panel discussion which includes real estate leaders, John Sebree, CEO of Missouri Realtors®, and Maria Wells, Past President of Florida Realtors®. Insurance industry leaders, Jim Albert, Chairman and Co-founder of Neptune Flood, John Dickson, President and CEO of AON Edge, Sean Harper, CEO of Kin Insurance, and Pinellas County Florida Flood Plain Manager, Lisa Foster will also join the panel. The panelists will address challenges and present solutions to increase flood insurance coverage by empowering Realtors with the knowledge and resources regarding flood insurance.
“The FAIR Foundation panel of distinguished flood experts will help educate and raise awareness about the importance of having flood insurance protection,” said Miller. “Too often, when it rains, it floods, which can be devastating unless a homeowner has specific flood insurance coverage to help them rebuild their lives.”
The six-week virtual conference series will run through October 28th and will provide solutions for stakeholders to unite and promote consumer education, resiliency through mitigation, improved disaster preparedness, closing the insurance protection gap, and developing action plans and strategies for meaningful progress and cultural change.
The virtual panel discussion, Realtors- The New Flood Insurance Experts? How Do We Increase Flood Insurance Coverage?, will be held on October 7, 2020 at 1:00 pm ET.
