An Appeal to Our Industry, from Dale Sailer

We’ve now held the fourth edition of the Property Insurance and Restoration Conference and, toward the end of the latest session, one of the contractor attendees (I’ll call him John) asked a question: “When should we expect to see the results of our efforts?”  While that query is quite valid, it is also very difficult to answer.  Jeff Hendler, the current administrator of the Collision Industry Conference (the 35 year old, elder sibling to our infant venture) provided a crisp answer to those in attendance in Salt Lake City, but I think it only touched one aspect of the impact that PIRC can have and, I might argue, already has.  Let me offer a perspective across a few dimensions.

Press Release: Upcoming Property Insurance & Restoration Conference (PIRC) Continues Valuable Issue Discussions

Pasco, Washington – January 23, 2018 – The fourth meeting of the industry start-up Property Insurance & Restoration Conference (PIRC) has released the preliminary agenda for the upcoming meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Grand America Hotel on February 12, 2018 beginning with an all-day meeting followed by a reception. Though the two events are not connected, PIRC will be held just prior to the Xactware Elevate Conference.

The PIRC, a uniquely-formatted conference held in the restoration industry, to be interactive and discussion-based for attendees. Where most other conference attendees participate in learning-type environments, this format is meant to have topic-led discussions between all industry segments that lead to issue identification, transparency, and possible solutions where applicable.
