Upcoming Events with The Luxury Marketing Council of San Francisco
Insurance Post Harvey
What Will You Tell Your Clients?
Thursday September 28th, 12.00-1.30 PM
If there is one thing catastrophe teaches us, it’s that insurance is generally regarded as a benign but necessary nuisance—until such time as it’s really needed. It’s then that we pay attention to the small-type terms and conditions that can have enormous financial implications. With climatic and societal disruption now the norm, rather than the exception, what do we really know about insurance, particularly property and casualty, and how well-equipped are we to offer advice in situations where the risk of providing wrong information can result in unnecessary cost, lapsed or failed coverages, failure to satisfy fiduciary responsibility and ultimately an unhappy client?
In this compelling lunch-time seminar, State Farm expert Kajal Pashmi and her team will provide up-to-date information on relevant, current topics that address all insurance needs—home & property, auto, other vehicles (motorcycles, sports and leisure vehicles, antiques and classics), liability (personal, business and professional), small business insurance (liability, workers comp, auto, farm and ranch), surety & fidelity bonds, consolidating insurance coverages, hidden premium savings and errors & omissions liability.
Note: A light lunch will be served

Announcements and invitations for each event are sent three times (Save the Date + two reminders). A final reminder message including parking details is sent 48 hours prior to the event to all confirmed parties.

RSVP’s for all Council events are received and processed through Eventbrite. Those wishing to attend an event simply click on the “To RSVP” button featured in the HTML announcement/invitation. That will automatically bring up the Eventbrite registration page.
Are there any event rules and requirements that I should be aware of?
- Every attendee (Council members and their guests) must be pre-registered on Eventbrite
- Unregistered, walk-in attendees may be refused admission given that most Council events are sold-out in advance
- Guests must be accompanied by the Council member who issued them the invitation
- While we realize that some cancellations are unavoidable because of emergency situations or late-minute business demands, we ask for the courtesy of a minimum 48 hour notice of cancellation so that cancelled seating can be reassigned to waiting listees and adjustments can be made to costly catering orders
- Dress code is business or business casual
