Update on February 2021 General Meeting
In lieu of the in person meeting that was initially scheduled for February 4, 2021, we will be sharing our standard content and update in a new way. Please click here for more info and reach out to Angela Pineda with any questions.
Thirty-five years ago in Bermuda, a few enterprising waterfront employers came together to forge a mutual to save on the cost of their workers' compensation. Signal Mutual was formed and the savings continue today with over 250 Members. All key performance indicators are at all-time highs and are projected to grow, with the principal focus on the safety of Members' employees.
At Signal, we pride ourselves in having a close personal working relationship and partnership with all our Members. We are committed to getting to know each and every one of you. At the heart of this commitment, are the two Membership meetings held in winter and summer each year. These business meetings are carefully designed and structured to give every Member an opportunity to fully understand the complete workings of their Mutual, to follow the finances, and to get acquainted with the entire Board of Directors, management team, and fellow Members.
Signal is the number one provider of Longshore workers’ compensation in the country for a reason – the strength and quality of the Membership. Signal is not an insurance company – it is a Club, your Club.
We look forward to seeing you at the next Membership meeting.
