To Our Trading Partners, Insureds, Friends and Colleagues

There is much uncertainty  surrounding COVID-19. Our first concern is for the health and well-being of our employees, their families and that of our trading partners.  Second to that, we hope to maintain business as usual  and continue to protect business and contribute to the economy. To that end, we have compiled a variety of resources that we thought might be of assistance as we run businesses, interact with staff and trading partners, as well as transact business. The regulatory environment is rapidly shifting in response to the outbreak. We have gathered some resources to stay abreast of compliance issues. We will do our best to keep it current and  relevant but we encourage you to seek legal counsel for guidance on specific matters.

If we can assist in anyway, as we navigate uncharted waters together, please let us know.

Our sincerest best wishes to all of you,

Lisa Doherty, President and CEO
