ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced a special offer for its members in partnership with Federated Insurance, the association’s safety and risk management partner. A limited number of slots will be made available to ACCA members to attend Federated’s Designated Risk Manager Seminar, at no charge. (Transportation and lodging are not provided.) This training is usually offered only to Federated clients, but ACCA members do not need to be insurance clients in order to participate in this two-and-a-half day program.

“The key to controlling your insurance premiums, and ultimately your business profitability, is to keep your losses under control,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “The best companies, of all sizes, have a designated risk manager to help control those losses. The challenge? It’s not a full-time job! So it’s difficult to ensure proper training and qualifications for the individual charged with this important role.”

Federated’s Designated Risk Manager Seminar is designed especially for the contracting industry, and offers targeted, interactive training to help contractors control their losses, and their premiums. Topics covered at the seminar include:

• Your Losses vs. Your Industry

• How to Designate a Risk Manager

• Motor Vehicle Reports – “Making the Tough Call”

• Distracted Driving

• Hiring Practices – “The Faces of Your Business”

• Business Planning – “Managing the Ultimate Risk”

• Risk Management for Your Industry

• Industry-Specific Claims Handling

• Industry-Specific Risk Management Practices

• Action Plans

• How an Underwriter Views Your Type of Business

• Emergency Preparedness

The Designated Risk Manager Seminar will be held Aug. 17-19, 2009 at Federated’s headquarters in Owatonna, Minn. Only a few spaces are available at no charge to ACCA members, so this training is first come, first served. ACCA members may download the required form at www.federatedinsurance.com/ws/cs/groups/public/documents/communications/drm_reply_form-contractors.pdf or contact Jina Duchnowski for more information, at 800-533-0472, ext. 5604, or by e-mail at jmduchnowski@fedins.com.
