Each year, Delaware Farm Bureau and Nationwide Insurance hold their Annual Policyholder Meeting & Dinner in late February. This year, Kent County Farm Bureau, hosted the event on February 28, 2013 in the Gold Ballroom at Harrington Raceway and Casino. Nationwide Insurance and DFB have enjoyed a strong partnership since 2004. Nationwide Insurance is the only insurance company founded for farmers by farmers. Farm Bureau leaders and policyholders were given the opportunity to ask questions they may normally not get the chance to ask.

Margie Chase, Nationwide Sponsor Relations Account Executive for MD & DE, play host for the evening. Copper theft from irrigation systems and claims concerns were big topics on the evening. President Gary Warren asked about copper thefts, which have become an ongoing issue in recent months throughout the State of Delaware. Police have encouraged the ag community and their neighbors to report on any suspicious activity they may see. Members were also concerned about the numbers of claims you can have before you are dropped. Nationwide assured them that there is no set number of claims that will get your policy dropped.

10 out of 16 members on Nationwide’s Board of Directors currently own and operate family farms. Of those ten people, eight have previously served as a State Farm Bureau President.
