Florida’s Citizens Property Insurance Board of Governors To Convene for Post-Irma Update Via Teleconference September 27

Sep 19, 2017

Amid Hurricane Irma recovery efforts, Florida’s Citizens Property Insurance Corporation’s (“Citizens'”) Board of Governors (“Board”) will still convene on September 27, 2017 at 9 a.m. (ET)–but now by conference call instead.

Committee meetings and an in-person meeting of the nine-member Board that had been scheduled for September 26-27 in Maitland have been canceled to allow Citizens’ staff to focus their attention on Hurricane Irma.

The one-hour meeting will include an abbreviated agenda to conduct previously noticed business.   To access toll-free call-in information and meeting documents (not yet posted), click here.

“Our policyholders are our immediate and top priority right now,” said Chris Gardner, Chairman of Citizens Board of Governors. “We want all of our resources dedicated to helping our customers recover from Hurricane Irma as quickly as possible.”

Citizens’ Board of Governors met on September 6, 2017, to approve an emergency authorization that allows the state’s insurer of last resort to respond more quickly to Hurricane Irma.  The authorization gives Citizens staff more authority to enter contracts and make purchases of goods and services to prepare for and respond to Irma. 

Citizens explained that the emergency action mirrors an executive order signed last week by Florida Governor Rick Scott that gave state agencies broad discretion and flexibility in responding to Irma.
