The Sacramento Resource Panel presents a unique opportunity for HOA board members to gain insights from industry experts and network with peers from diverse backgrounds. Kevin Boland of Farmers Insurance will be leading the conversation on the evolving landscape of insurance in 2024. 

In recent times, we've witnessed a significant spike in insurance rates, a trend that can be attributed to a variety of factors, including increased natural disasters, inflationary pressures, and higher construction costs. These rising costs have particularly impacted homeowners and HOAs, leaving many searching for ways to navigate this challenging landscape.

Join Kevin Boland with The Kevin Boland Insurance Agency as he goes through the factors that are causing rates to soar in California and provides insight on how HOAs can help fight back against these increased rates. He will be providing solutions that may help associations keep their coverage while not breaking the bank or requiring special assessments just to pay the premium.
