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.
At these informative and wonderful events, we see many old friends and colleagues, and their families. We know that for many Members these meetings can represent a considerable commitment of time and expense, but I believe it is time and expense very well spent. If you have yet to attend a Signal membership meeting, I strongly encourage you to consider joining your fellow Members and the management team. For 2019, the January meeting will be held in Florida and the August meeting in Bermuda.
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.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you next year.
