Alexis Burns is the Executive Vice President at Burns & Burns and works from the Clarion office. Rachel Argiro is a Licensed Insurance Agent at the Mercer office. They were joined by 30 other attendees from all over the country to learn the basics of bonds. This bond school was considered a continuing education course where Alexis and Rachel each earned nine credits towards their state license continuing education requirement.

Some interesting information was learned during the surety bond school.

For example, the government requires bonds on jobs over $100,000.00, for projects such as paving, excavating, work on schools or parks, etc. Private owners may also require contractors to obtain bonds on hospitals or church projects. Large general contractors can require bonds for their subcontractors. There are many different bond types to be offered, including executor, fish and game guide, guardian, livestock dealer, notary public, public official, and the list goes on.

Burns & Burns is prepared to offer these bond services with The Cincinnati Insurance Company. Oftentimes, a financial statement analysis is done on those who are acquiring large bonds, so it is important to have a good financial position.
