In the aftermath of natural disasters such as the Joplin tornados and Hurricane Sandy, business owners were left asking if they would be prepared for such a catastrophe if it hit them.

  David M. Hall, Section Manager for State Farm’s Innovation and Small Business Solutions, will discuss disaster preparedness at the Jenks Chamber of Commerce’s Monthly luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 20.

  “David’s presentation is a real eye-opener,” Jenks Chamber of Commerce President Josh Driskell said. “After seeing this presentation, I knew this was something that the businesses in Jenks and South Tulsa need to experience. David provides real world examples of what disasters can mean to your business in addition to ways to prepare for them and to minimize lost time.”

  Hall has worked with State Farm for nearly 25 years. He received his BS in Marketing from Bloomsburg University and earned his CPCU and ALCM designations in 1995. He served as an adjunct instructor at Indiana State University, Department of Insurance from 1999 to 2000.

  Hall is involved with the community as the Vice President of the Board of Directors at Tulsa Partners as well as being actively involved with the Institute for Business and Home Safety and the International Center for Enterprise Preparedness.

The luncheon will be held Wednesday, Feb. 20 at noon at the Holiday Inn Express in Jenks.
