Our thanks to all of you who attended our annual Policyholders' Conference in Denver. More than 980 attended the event this year, which was particularly gratifying given the ongoing restrictions on travel budgets at a number of member and broker companies.
Many of the general session and breakout presentations are posted on our website — including Bob Hartwig's presentation on economic and insurance market conditions as well as the popular presentations on transitioning to renewable infrastructure, risks emerging from the smart grid and the D&O update from Dan Bailey.
Your response to the new online application that we introduced at the conference was very positive. The application is now live and it can be used for Excess Liability and Workers' Compensation coverage with a renewal date of January 1, 2011 or later. We are grateful for the feedback from members and brokers regarding the old application as well as the considerable contribution of time and energy from members and brokers during the development of the new application. This type of collaboration is the essence of our mutual partnership.
We also introduced a library of on-demand Loss Control videos at the conference. These videos cover a wide variety of safety and training issues related to electric and natural gas utilities. They are tailored to the needs of utility company employees, emergency first responders, aircraft pilots and the general public. The videos are available online to AEGIS members and brokers with an AEGIS user name and password. To apply for a password, please call 1.866.MY.AEGIS (1.866.692.3447) or submit a contact form.
Your comments on the PHC evaluation forms were very positive regarding the program content, networking opportunities and activities. We are also grateful for your constructive suggestions for improvement and will consider them carefully as we plan next year's conference, which will be held July 25 to July 28, 2011 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers in Chicago, IL.
