February 2020

Now that the Superbowl has passed and the groundhog did not see his shadow, we can only hope that Spring arrives soon.

We had an awesome January meeting!  A special thanks to Shawn Gyorke, Deputy Chief Arlington Heights Police Department for an informative and amazing presentation regarding the “Practical Applications of Event Data Recorders and Damage Analysis”.  As always, we hope that you were able to bring back good information from this presentation and tell those who were not able to attend what new information is being passed on regarding our daily battle against insurance fraud.

Our next meeting will be held on Friday, March 20th, 2020 from 9am to 11am (networking at 8.30am) at Allstate Insurance 9022 Heritage Parkway, Woodridge, IL. 60517. Our speaker will be Jennifer Humphrey, LPCS General Special Investigator for Farmers Insurance. She will complete a presentation for us discussing the aspect of claim loans and the layers between the loan company, attorney and provider.

This is YOUR Chapter and you have a dynamite and committed Board serving you. I know that you all will continue to support the Chapter as we move ahead in the coming years and continue to grow and serve our members.  Thanks to all of you for all that you have done and will continue to do..

The Board asks that if you would like to recommend a training topic/speaker, please make your thoughts known to Chris Block, who is our Training Chair for the Chapter. His e-mail is chris.block@farmersinsurance.com.  It is with such suggestions in the past that our training has stayed on the mark for what the membership needs to be exposed to.

As a reminder, please mark your calendars for the meeting dates shown on the website so you are sure not to miss a meeting. Keep in mind that our bi-monthly meetings are held in January, March and November on the third Friday of the month, that the Annual Seminar is in May and the September Networking meeting to be announced.  The Board hopes to see all of our members at the meetings.

Thanks to ALL who make this Chapter the success that it has been and for your support as we go forward. It is YOUR involvement that makes this Chapter what it is.

As always,
Heather Horvath
