PEAKS IN THE PRAIRIES
Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is working through a period of increased claims volumes thanks to an active storm season in the Prairies. According to an email distributed by the Saskatchewan Association of Automotive Repairers (SAAR), the claims volumes over the last six-to-eight weeks have been above average.
“Although the claim operations team is working to maintain a balance between claims intake and handling functions as we work through this peak in volumes, it’s possible you may experience delays in accessing an adjuster,” wrote Tom Bissonnette, director of SAAR, in the email notice. SGI has also made amendments to its Town Hall meetings in light of the current COVID-19 conditions.
“THE UPCOMING DATES FOR SGI TOWN HALLS ARE:
MARCH 12 – SAAR SPRING CONFERENCE IN MOOSE JAW
MARCH 24 – SGI TOWN HALL IN SWIFT CURRENT
APRIL 7 – SGI TOWN HALL IN REGINA
APRIL 28 – SGI TOWN HALL IN NORTH BATTLEFORD
MAY 5 – SGI TOWN HALL IN SASKATOON”
SAAR YOU READY?
Tickets are on sale for the Saskatchewan Association of Automotive Repairers’ (SAAR) 2022 Spring Conference, set for the second week of March in Moose Jaw.
Set to kick off on the morning of March 12, attendees of this year’s annual general meeting can expect to hear from influential auto industry names like Quinn Magnuson from BDC, Peter Wrong from 3M and Jean Luc Sauriol from AsTech.
Saturday’s meetings will be preceded with a night of food and fellowship at local Moose Jaw restaurant, Bobby’s Place. This year’s event will be held at the Temple Gardens Hotel and Spa.
The event will be styled in a casual come-and-go format where participants can join SAAR for some pub food and refreshments, said the group.
