Panel of Experts to Discuss Community Rating System at Above Board Chamber Event
Reduce Flood Insurance Rates and Prevent Mayhem!
Above Board Chamber of Florida presents a panel on the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System (CRS), a “level of excellence” that results in policy discounts for businesses and homeowners in Lee County. This is a unique opportunity for local business owners and homeowners to hear from a panel of experts on The National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS). This is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP requirements. As a result, flood insurance premium rates are discounted to reflect the reduced flood risk resulting from the community actions.
This luncheon will take place on Thursday, January 9, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at The Landings Yacht, Golf and Tennis Club, located at 4425 S. Landings Drive in Fort Myers.
The panel of experts includes Danny Hinson, CFM, FPEM FDEM Mitigation CRS Coordinator from the State of Florida in Tallahassee and Joan LaGuardia, Lee County Communications Manager for Lee County Community Development and will be emceed by Connie Ramos Williams of CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing.
