Let’s Talk Insurance! With Amy Bach from United Policyholders

Join us for another interactive discussion following our very successful April event on Earthquake Risk Mitigation, A Bridge Between Policy and Engineering. This time we have invited Amy Bach, the Executive Director of United Policyholders to talk to our members about earthquake insurance from the consumer perspective. Amy will give us a broad overview of various resources and initiatives that UP is involved in, giving us a good insight into their work both here and in the other states where they are involved in post-disaster insurance, delving more deeply into how UP has been assisting renters, home and business owners in California to be thoughtful and realistic about quake damage.
