Changing weather trends - the Good, the Bad, the Ugly   Dr. James Angel, Illinois State Climatologist

Weather trends can show us areas of concern that can help us plan for the future.  State climatologist Dr. James Angel will share his data and provide us with predictions that could directly affect our mutual.  Looking at your claims history can show you valuable information and help you rate your risk. Unfortunately, we've seen the hundred-year storm, more than once recently.  Has your mutual reviewed the risk of all the areas you insure and will you be ready?
