We had a great meeting yesterday with lots of new faces! We had a more intimate group with 9 people attending so everyone had a chance to talk with everyone and learn more about each others’ businesses.
Jan Sutton with Farmer’s insurance presented today and told us about Certificates of Liability Insurance. Whenever you hire a contractor Jan strongly recommends requesting a certificate so you can see exactly what your contractor’s insurance policies are. She also told us to make sure that the name on the certificate matches the name of the contractor and that the description of the work is outlined in the certificate as well.
We have a ton of upcoming networking events!
