We were thrilled to see so many of you in San Francisco at our annual Policyholders' Conference. More than 1,260 attended the event this year which was the highest in the history of the Conference. We were particularly pleased that the number of member company representatives also was the highest in the history of the Conference.
Your comments on the evaluation forms were overwhelmingly positive regarding the program content, networking opportunities and family-friendly activities. We are also grateful for your constructive suggestions for improvement and will consider them carefully as we plan the 2009 PHC. Thanks for being part of this very successful conference.
Many of the general session and breakout presentations are posted on our website – including Bob Hartwig's presentation on the condition of the insurance industry and the popular presentations on ERM and PG&E’s approach to climate change.
During the general sessions, we introduced two new coverages tailored specifically for the emerging needs of AEGIS members.
Presentations about our new construction alliance with Liberty Mutual were enthusiastically received. The new construction program includes a complete range of occurrence-based primary and excess coverages for energy-related construction projects, including primary general liability and workers' compensation. Combined with AEGIS property capacity, we now provide complete construction capabilities, including multi-year coverages, OCIPs and wrap-ups. Coverage details are posted on our website. For more information, please contact George Keefe by e-mail or at 201.508.2797.
We also introduced a new alliance with Hiscox, a leader in underwriting cyber exposures, to provide privacy and cyber coverage specifically designed for utilities and energy companies. The policy indemnifies for liability and expenses resulting from a variety of incidents and the basic policy limit is $25 million, with additional limits available. Coverage details are posted on our website. For more information, please contact George Keefe by e-mail or at 201.508.2797.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2009 Policyholders' Conference which will be held in Boston from July 27 through July 30 at the Westin Copley Place.
