Dear Friends,

Two-way communication is a critical component in finding ways we can better serve you. After reading feedback provided through this newsletter's survey, we will be making some changes that we hope will serve you better. We heard that you wanted a text-only PDF-version of this publication to download and we have now implemented this feature. You can click the "Download PDF-version" at the bottom right of each issue's home page to save or print the entire issue in one document.

There was also feedback about The Pulse's content containing a lot of enforcement but not much praise for the industry. Keeping the "bad apples" out of the marketplace to maintain the good reputation that our licensees have earned is part of this department's unrelenting mission. The consumers of Florida should expect the person they are entrusting with their money is providing them the best service. Enforcement is necessary to weed out the unscrupulous individuals who only want to take advantage of others. We want you to know that we are doing our very best to preserve the integrity of the profession that insurance professionals deserve.

As far as the current legislative session, we are waiting to see what laws will be passed. A lot can happen in the final days of the session. When we know more, we will be sure to keep you informed in the next couple of issues of any laws that will affect your license.

Please continue to let us know how we can improve our communication to you with The Pulse.

Thank you,

Jeff Atwater
