Community Grown Board of Directors

These are the individuals that direct our company. They oversee things like our staff and how they conduct business, they set our rates, they review how we handle claims and inspections, they oversee our surplus and our investments. They care about these things because they pay the same rates you do. Most importantly, they are policyholders just like you. No 3 piece suit attorneys or bankers with no connection to you, the policyholder. The best part is, you can also be a director, as long as you are a policyholder. These are voted upon yearly at our annual meeting. Director terms are 3 years.
