Here Are a Few Highlights from 2021:

  • The launch of CONNECT by IFAI, our new online community. One of the many things we learned the last year was the importance of connection and networking. CONNECT by IFAI allows members to post questions, find answers and to search the resource library where all documents are available to share.
  • PAMA created the long-awaited Energy Savings Calculator, a web-based app that calculates the energy savings for residential and commercial awnings.
  • IFAI expanded our Marine Businses Insurance to all divisions and changed the name to IFAI Business Insurance, which covers property, general liability, worker compensation, cyber liability and a lot more.
