Presidential Matters
Cheers to 40 Years! 
Peter Elliott, TIG President & CEO
This year has already seen its fair share of natural disasters. There will likely be even more as we head into the warmer months of the year when tornados and hurricanes are known to wreak havoc. Telcom Insurance Group is celebrating 40 years in 2022, which represents the longest-standing supporter of the telecom industry. If stronger together means anything to you, it is clear that being partners with us as insureds and shareholders is highly important. Strength in numbers has never been more true.
Telcom's 2022 RMC: Virtual
In 2021, we were fortunate enough to schedule our Risk Management Conference during a time when travel resumed. Here are a few photos from our visit to Asheville, North Carolina.
Happy Easter!
Considered Christianity’s most important holy day, Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter is observed on the first Sunday following the full moon after the vernal equinox.


If you choose, you can participate in any number of church services. Some churches even host sunrise services. Other common activities include dying eggs with children or attending an Easter egg hunt. Many local communities hold annual egg hunts, so check your local social media, newspapers, and community listings for dates and times.

Safety Matters
Poisonous Plants 101: Tips for Preventing Exposure
Marilyn Blake, AU, CRM
This is the most popular time of year to clear telephone poles and powerlines of overgrown trees and shrubs. With poison ivy, oak, and sumac growing in almost every state, the likelihood of coming into contact with these poisonous plants is high.
Yard Work Safety
To some, yard work is a form of relaxation and enjoyment. To others, it’s a pain in the neck – or back. With a variety of injuries possible, it’s important to take safety precautions while you are working outside.

As the winter comes to a close and spring begins, yard work often features prominently on homeowners’ to-do lists. Whether you are an expert gardener or simply mowing your yard, you should always proceed with an element of care. You do NOT want to become one of the 400,000 people in the U.S. each year who end up in an emergency room with a yard-work related injury.
