                         and ServiceMaster Clean
                                Tuesday March 16, 2010
                   5:30 to 8:30pm Hilton Garden Inn Fort Myers FL




Without proper mitigation of a water loss, mold can start to grow in as little as 48 hours, and
mold contamination has been identified as a major contributor to building related illness and
poor indoor air quality. In this class, we’ll examine what mold is and its health effects on
people. You’ll see how mold grows, how it spreads, and its life cycle. In addition, you’ll learn
what action should be taken to remove mold in a safe and reasonable manner. And you’ll
learn the most important secret about mold in buildings.




Are you interested in Professional Skills Development, Insurance Education, Leadership
Development and Networking opportunities? The Insurance Professionals of Lee County, a
local chapter of National Association of Insurance Women, meet every 3rd Tuesday at the
Hilton Garden in Fort Myers. We network, have dinner, and then enjoy a Guest Speaker or
CE Class. Past topics have included Chinese Drywall, Community Service Programs; Ethics,
Hurricanes, “Before, During and After the Fire…Return to Normal”; Wills and Trusts, and
many more.

Please join us on Tuesday, March 16 at the Fort Myers Hilton Garden to learn more about us
and what we can offer…..and get some CE Credit at the same time!! If you can’t make it to
our March 16 class, learn more about us on our website, IPOLC.org. If you want to receive
