Free CE Seminar in Greensboro, NC on December 6, 2010

LIA Administrators & Insurance Services and READI have the following CE seminar scheduled.  This CE seminar through READI is free for READI members and LIA insureds.  It also qualifies appraisers insured by LIA for a credit on their E&O premium of up to $50.

Greensboro, North Carolina, December 6, 2010, 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. -- "Loss Prevention for Real Estate Appraisers.” NC Course Approval No. 1842 (4 hours CE). The seminar is free but we do ask that appraisers seeking NC credit pay $5 on the day of class for NC’s mandatory CE reporting fee. Location: Deep River Events Center, 606 Millwood School Road, Greensboro, NC 27409.

This seminar is also approved for 4 hours of CE credit in AZ, CA, DE, FL, HI, MA, MN, NC, NH, NV, OK, PA, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, and WI. The registered provider of the seminar in each state is LIA Administrators & Insurance Services.

The seminar addresses legal claims and issues affecting residential and commercial real estate appraisers. The information is based on actual claims and lawsuits filed against appraisers. We tailor the content to particular recent claims issues in the geographic area of the seminar. In addition to the interesting facts involved in many of the cases, the seminar provides specific instruction about how appraisers can minimize their risk of being sued and about how to be prepared for such an event if it happens. We will also discuss the spike in FDIC litigation and indemnity and other problematic provisions in contracts. The content of the seminar is equally geared for commercial and residential appraising.

There are two ways that appraisers can sign up for and attend this seminar for free:

1. Appraisers insured by LIA can reserve a space by emailing me at

2. Appraisers can attend for free if they register with READI at before signing up for a seminar (access code 201700). READI’s basic membership is free and there is no catch, other than we want to know who and where you are so that we can keep you informed about READI and its benefits like this free class. After registering for membership with READI, appraisers can reserve space in a seminar by emailing

If appraisers do not wish to take advantage of the free attendance opportunities, the price of the seminar is $75 but please email to reserve a space.

Thank you,
Peter Christensen
