"The Windstorm Insurance Network is a unique platform which brings a large cross-section of practitioners together."

"Aside from the fact that the conference represents a tremendous educational forum, a major benefit is the harmonious interaction between representatives of the insurers and representatives of the policyholders. This interaction promotes the development of professional relationships which lend themselves to the mutual goal of achieving a prompt and equitable settlement for both sides."

Tony D’Amico Public Adjuster, Principal, Goodman Gable Gould

"The Windstorm Insurance Conference has been an excellent investment of time and effort over the years. Everything I have put into it has come back geometrically in the form of a better appreciation of the challenges confronting all aspects of our industry, the issues which warrant our disagreement, and the many issues upon which we can agree, to the benefit of all the people we serve"

Andy Rock Defense Attorney, The Rock Law Group

"The present claims environment is in continuous flux, with new challenges occurring daily. I have found it very beneficial for myself and my staff to attend the annual WIND conference. It gives us the opportunity to network with the various professions serving the industry and stay in tune with the ever-changing landscap"
