10:15–11:15 a.m. Renovation, Repair, Risks and Insurance
greg Deimling, cpcu, arm, amim; Donald malecki, cpcu and Chris manougian. moderated by Clifford J. treese, cpcu, arm, cirms
If reserve studies and annual budgets are the fund- ing predictions necessary to achieve a well-main- tained community association, then the orderly dis- tribution of that funding depends on renovation and repair contracts that will protect the association if things don’t go as intended. This session covers the key elements of contractual risk transfer and explains the role of insurance funding for that transfer.
11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Sociable up to a Point: understanding, Creating and Ensuring a Social Media and Cyber Risk Policy for Your Firm and Your Clients
Richard Betterley; Jason E. Fisher, esq. and Robert Sides, ams, pcam. moderated by Robin C. manougian, cirms
Social media now connects hundreds of millions of people, companies, government agencies and others, and it is evolving so rapidly that it is difficult to assess the benefits and risks. Employers and associations face potential legal issues, work performance con- cerns and recruitment and retention problems that may arise from social media—and these problems may not all be insurable. This session examines the social media arena and its implications for insurers.
11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Community Association Insurance and Risk Management: Issues and Trends with Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Federal Housing Adminis- tration, National Flood Insurance Program and
the California Earthquake Authority
Albert LeQuang; Ezzard J. Alves; Steven wainland; glenn pomeroy and Kevin Davis, cirms. moderated by Clifford J. treese, cpcu, arm, cirms
Identifying and analyzing risks in housing development and operation are constantly evolving challenges, especially for federal and state agencies and sponsored enterprises respon- sible for fostering viable homeowner- ship. With respect to community associations, this risk management effort can be particularly challenging because the agency may not have direct contact with the asso- ciation itself, which may be the source of a perceived risk. This roundtable session brings together agency experts and program participants to achieve an understanding of how certain risks might be better managed and insured.
