Just a Few Seats Left in the LIA/READI Class on June 13 in Silverdale, WA to Support the Appraisers Coalition of Washington

There are just few seats left in this . . .

In our further support of the Appraisers Coalition of Washington (ACOW) and its political action for appraisers in WA, READI and LIA Administrators & Insurance Services are pleased to join with the Olympic Peninsula Chapter of NAIFA in offering LIA’s 4-hour live CE seminar entitled "Loss Prevention for Real Estate Appraisers” (WA course #AP544) in Silverdale, Washington, on June 13, 2011, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Silverdale Beach Hotel, 3073 Northwest Bucklin Hill Road, Silverdale, WA 98383-9191.

The CE seminar is being given as a fundraiser for ACOW. Accordingly, the only cost of the seminar is a $20 or more donation to ACOW (payable at the seminar).  In addition, appraisers insured through LIA's E&O program with Liberty Mutual become eligible for a one-time discount on their E&O premium of either $25 or $50 depending on their level of coverage – the discount may be taken on any payment due on a current or future policy after completion of the class.

The presenter of the CE seminar is Peter Christensen, LIA’s general counsel and director of LIA’s liability prevention resource READI –  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, including specific cases in Washington.  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 occurs.  It is suited to both residential and commercial appraisers.
