Kim Boaz opened the meeting and had each person select a name from the group. She encouraged everyone to acquire the contact information of the person’s name they drew and meet to get to know each other better. Kim briefly recapped some highlights from the August meeting. She mentioned that E & O and liability insurance for bookkeepers averages $875 per year. Kim recommends calling Colleen Byers of Pacific Benefit Consultants at 1-800-588-8688 or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss insurance needs. If you mention that Kim Boaz is the daughter of Donna Corwin you may receive a better rate.
