We are pleased to announce that our diocese now has a new Risk Manager! Bill Neville, a communicant in the Diocese of Southern Ohio, and the current risk manager in that diocese, has graciously agreed to this position in our diocese. Bill will be on board with us effective April 1, 2011.
The risk manager position is part of the Episcopal Safety Program (ESP) sponsored by Church Insurance Company of VT and managed by Church Insurance Agency. The risk manager works in conjunction with our regional Vice-Preisdent, Fred Swing, on conducting on-site walk-throughs of parish buildings and grounds, and reviewing reports of suggestions/recommendations for improving safety. These individuals provide additional resources to the parish as part of their ongoing risk management plan.
Church Insurance funds the program with insurance premiums paid by our diocese, and therefore the inspection is completed at no cost to the parish.
More details on this important program can be found in the brochure below.
