2013 Executive of the Year Greg Clark
Robert E. Mackoul, CLU President
It seems the insurance industry is on vaca2on for the en2re summer, and as soon as Labor Day passes our industry comes back to work with a vengeance. We are in the fall now and the month of September had no less than ﬁve major events or mee2ngs. Our commitment for this year was to “make a diﬀerence”, and I believe we got oﬀ to a good start this past month. “OverdraF”, the Travelers one hour video and a panel discussion was presented on September 24that the Melville MarrioK to a large audience. The topic was our na2onal debt, its crippling eﬀect on our society and the long term issues we as a na2on confront. The program was very revealing and had a tremendous impact on the audience who later mingled over cocktails and hors d’ouvres to discuss the ramiﬁca2ons of the powerful message. Our annual TriCounty Golf Classic was held on October 3rd at Woodmere Country Club honoring Greg Clark of MAPFRE as the 2013 Outstanding Insurance Company Execu2ve and with all proﬁt from the event donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. The weather was spectacular, the golf course was ﬁlled to capacity and the cocktail recep2on and dinner was aKended by more than 200 people. MAPFRE Insurance, in tribute to Greg Clark, brought more than 20 employees including Jaime Tamayo, President & CEO. A wonderful day was had by all and a truly deserving execu2ve was given a richly deserved honor, Congratula2ons Greg!
October 29 is the one year anniversary of Super Storm Sandy and all the devasta2on it brought to our area. As we move into the fall with Halloween and Thanksgiving approaching, we need to think back just one year to this event of historic propor2ons -‐ an event whose eﬀect on hundreds of thousands of people, homes and businesses in towns and neighborhoods all over the East coast and especially our Long Island and New York City are s2ll being felt today. Recovery has been slow and is s2ll going on. Let’s be more prepared in the event of another catastrophe. As insurance professionals, we have a responsibility to help clients by providing crucial informa2on about storm mi2ga2on and what to do aFer a storm. Be sure to have plans in eﬀect to protect your business as well; you’ll want to keep the lines of communica2on open with your clients and carriers at all 2mes. Hope to see everyone at our holiday party on December 12 at Chateau Briand in Carle Place. Once again, this will be an outstanding event. Don’t miss it. Bob Mackoul

Annual Holiday Party On December 12, 2013 Tri County will once again host our annual holiday party. In years past this was not an event that ever needed to be promoted, as all members and Insurance company representatives waited for the date. We had many Tri County members that used the holiday party as their oﬃce party. What could be better than spending the evening with fellow workers, company friends and fellow agents. Unfortunately like many long time traditions, peoples interests change, budgets are slimmed down and what use to be a consistent sell out, became a struggle. Three years ago our “marketing Guru” Steve Visco changed everything and decided if you build a world class event, members & friends will come back. Anyone that has attended the Tri County holiday party the last two years has not been disappointed. Steve has built an event that oﬀers something for everyone, for me seeing over 200 fellow insurance professional at any event is a success.
What we can promise you is Steve’s new high energy holiday party theme will continue this year. We are planning a party that will allow Insurance professionals to network together at the most festive time of the year. We have reached out to all our local insurance carrier friends and asked that their sponsorship be taking a table of 10, so they can invite their best agents to share a holiday meal. I ask you to help promote the Holiday party to your carrier marketing reps as well as your fellow agents. Help us continue a tradition that has been around a long time. Looking forward to seeing everyone at this year’s Holiday Party!

2013 Downstate Legislative Forum
On October 23rd, the Downstate Insurance Association hosted their annual legislative Forum at Chateau Briand in Carle Place. The legislative forum is held once a year and offers attendees an opportunity to hear from industry associations in New York regarding issues of interest and concern to agents and brokers, and how the three associations are working in concert to address these issues in the state Legislature. The event featured a panel discussion comprised of PIANY Director of Government & Industry Affairs Matthew Guilbault, Esq., and lobbyists Jill Muratori representing IIABNY and Tom Faist representing CIBGNY. Prior to the general meeting, there was a closed meeting with the lobbyists and the leaders of the associations that make up Downstate. Joe Bosnack, by Stephen Folan the president of Downstate led this discussion. It is a The Folan Agency valuable exchange of ideas and feedback that he lobbyists can take back to Albany as they plan their position papers for 2014. It is also an opportunity for the lobbyists to ask what we see as agents. Most of the dialogue centered on the effects of Sandy a year later. It was a chance to revisit the appointments we had with our state legislators in January and what has transpired since that time. Jeffrey Greenfield then moderated the general meeting. Topics discussed included lessons learned from Sandy, tort reform, automobile photo inspections, hurricane deductible trigger standardization and certificates of insurance legislation. While most legislators in coastal districts and most agents favor a standardized catastrophic wind deductible, many companies do not. They feel it is
an intrusion on their authority to write their policy forms. If the DFS can standardize the wind deductible trigger, what will be next? From the agent & broker standpoint, there is a large E&O exposure. We represent multiple companies, each with their own triggers. Insureds who are relatives and friends of each other will come after us when one is paying a $1000 deductible and the other is paying 5% of the dwelling limit. During our trips to Albany, we warn the legislators that the number of calls they receive now after major weather events will pale in comparison to when the storm hits and the hurricane deductibles are triggered. Many bills were floated in Albany soon after Superstorm Sandy which shortened time frames on claims handling and other issues involving perceived problems with the aftermath of Sandy. Most of these bills have not been enacted. Sometimes the best work of the lobbyists is done on bills that they prevent from being passed rather than pushing for bills which we support. The issue with certificates of insurance was resolved about the same time as the Downstate meeting. The legislation only requires the governor’s signature. All three groups will continue to work to reform the State’s so-called “Scaffold Law” by amending sections 240 and 240(1) in New York’s Labor Law. There will be possible legislative tweaking of the state health insurance exchange, NY State of Health, and some auto insurance reforms, including changes to combat no-fault insurance fraud and photo inspection requirements. The legislative session for the New York State Legislature doesn’t resume until January 2014, but it’s no secret incumbent lawmakers running for re-election have their sights set on positioning themselves for the next campaign. In light of the upcoming 2014 campaign season, it’s anticipated the Senate and Assembly are not likely to vote on legislation that might be perceived as controversial after both houses are gaveled back into session. The TriCounty Legislative Committee will be working to make appointments with our legislators in their local offices over the next few months. If you know a state assembly person or senator and can help with getting an appointment, contact the committee.

Love That Tune....Play It Again!
We are often victims of our own habits…I know because I catch myself being victimized every day by these habits. I get in my car and my usual hour commute to work turns into a 1010 WINS depression fest or an ESPN , well, yeah, depression fest, too, since my Giants are just terrible right now.
by Alex Giraldo Club Agency
But, before I know it, an hour passes by and my daily voyage has come and gone. I come into the oﬃce to get bombarded by emails and tons of information elaborating on everything I just heard an hour ago…It’s so repetitive…And my day begins with production reports and, most importantly, my phone stats. I get to see how many calls we took in, how many we answered and how many we abandoned…Then I look at my agency management system to see how many prospects and sales we
had the day before. These numbers can be shaped to mean a lot of things, bad or good, but. at the core. they are not responsible for even 25% of my agency’s success. The success comes from my counselors and how they perform on every single call they handle. But how do I measure that? Well, for starters, I would need their calls to be recorded and that must be extremely expensive, right? Wrong! Most phone systems can be adjusted to accept third party hardware or software that can record your calls…Then you can listen to those calls on your computer at your leisure…You would be AMAZED at what you hear when you listen to your counselor’s calls, good and bad. But, I have no time to listen to my guy’s calls. I’ve got a business to run! I can tell you that I know for a fact I have at least 1 hour every single day! (2 if you count the trip back home) ESPN and 1010 WINS can take a back seat, besides, some of
Love That Tune....Play It Again! con’t
my counselor’s calls are more entertaining than a lot of the fluﬀ these radio people throw around all the time. So it turns out that technology is allowing us to go mobile with practically every facet of our life, and this is not limited to listening to how your counselors build rapport, cross sell, up sell and close. These call recording systems can have the calls sync up to your phone like a podcast…how awesome is that! I’m sure you can go a day or two without listening to Niki Minaj, Lady Gaga , Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber right? How about you play that tune that actually gives you an advantage the minute you step in to your oﬃce….I guarantee it will make you a happier person and a smarter insurance agent.

You Helped Make-A-Wish Come True Craig was just a child at only 9 years old, but that didn't stop a potentially fatal brain condition from taking hold of his body. His wish, to leave the chaos of hospitals and treatment and go to Walt Disney World. His wish was granted. Now eight years have passed, two brain surgeries and this first-in-his-class senior had another wish, to give someone else theirs. Douglas is 6. He is very sick. What does he wish for? To meet Mickey, Minnie and the gang. So Craig had an idea. He went to the Make-A-Wish Suﬀolk chapter, the people who granted his wish. Craig wanted to create a walk with them in hopes of raising enough money to pay it forward. And…success! His walk gave Douglas his wish and raised more than $30,000, ensuring many other wishes too. So, why share this beautiful story? Because whether or not you knew it, you had a hand in it. Trusted Choice®, working on your behalf, was the main sponsor of this race. A
contributor who helped make the event possible. It doesn't stop there. Over the next few months, we will be sponsoring Make-A-Wish events throughout the state. Events like this one and the upcoming Ms. Orange Fan Luncheon in CNY. Trusted Choice is granting us the money to make this possible, to allow us to help others while showing what it means to be Trusted Choice. In closing, we'll share the moment Douglas found out his wish was being granted. Standing in front of Mickey, Minnie and the gang, Fairy Godmother asked "Douglas, which character are you most excited to see in Disney World?" Douglas paused, looked at each one of them, then seeming not wanting to hurt anyone’s feelings said, "all of them."
