As a complement to our written feature, Tough-Minded in a Soft Market, we asked several members to comment on issues including the economy, technology and client expectations. Here are some thoughts from Dan Klaras, President of Assurance Agency; Brian Hetherington, CEO & Co-Chairman of ABD Insurance and Financial Services; and Jon Loftin, President & COO of MJ Insurance.

The booming Northern California economy is good for business.

Jon Loftin, Dan Klaras, and Brian Hetherington discuss the on-demand world, data analytics and self-service.

The unique risks in the sharing economy market pose new opportunities.
