When it comes to selecting health, workers’ compensation, or property & liability insurance, public entities need predictability and superior coverage at the lowest responsible cost. Delaware Valley Trusts members enjoy stable rates that defy industry trends while taking advantage of broader coverage, cash dividends, rate credits, multi-trust discounts, exceptional member service, and a wide array of exclusive value-added options. See why our risk-sharing pools offer a compelling, cost-effective alternative to the volatile commercial market.
As a Borough Manager, I am constantly blown away by the response I receive as a member of the Delaware Valley Trusts. The Trust’s value-added programs such as training, legal guidance and loss control resources are more than just benefits – they set the DVT apart from any other liability coverage provider!
“I can’t say enough about the high-quality customer service provided by the DVT staff. It is always nice to speak with someone who knows you and whom you have actually met face to face and not just contacting an impersonal call center. “
“The most positive aspect about becoming a member was access to DVT staff who were very supportive during our transition to DVT initially, and have remained so year after year. DVT offers prompt and professional support at every level of the organization.”
The goals of the Trusts are the most closely aligned with the goals of our elected officials in providing quality health care to our employees than the other trusts and commercial providers. In addition, the service provided by the Trust is outstanding.
Description: Invasive weeds and pests are a major threat to our natural and cultivated landscapes, spreading quickly and displacing or killing native plants. Invasive species (plants, insects, and animals) are costing the United States more than $138 billion each year, due to their economic impact on agriculture, forestry, fisheries, waterways, wildlife, and ornamental landscapes. Ecologists now rank invasion by exotic plants, animals and pathogens second only to habitat loss as a major threat to local biodiversity.
This workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to properly identify invasive plants and develop strategies for treatment and control. A portion of the day will be spent in the field looking at invasive plants, the results of management, and a calibration demonstration.
Audience: This course was designed specifically for municipal public works and parks employees, planners, tree commissioners and arborists who work within their communities.
