LIA CE Seminar "Loss Prevention for Real Estate Appraisers" on June 16 in Bakersfield, CA

I will be teaching LIA's CE seminar Loss Prevention Program for Real Estate Appraisers on June 16, 2011 in Bakersfield, CA.  The seminar is approved for 4 hours of CE credit in CA (and many other states, including NV, AZ, OR, and WA). LIA is the presenter and provider of the CE class. It is being hosted by the Central California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. The seminar will take place 1:00-5:00 p.m. The location is Hodel's Country Dining, 5917 Knudsen Drive, Bakersfield, CA 93308. The seminar tuition includes a lunch buffet from 12:00-1:00 p.m. (during the AI chapter meeting).

This is the same seminar that we will teach at the Appraisal Institute's Annual Meeting in Las Vegas in August. It addresses current legal claims and liability issues affecting residential and commercial appraisers. The information is based on actual claims and lawsuits. In addition to discussion about the interesting facts involved in many of the cases, the seminar provides specific instruction about how appraisers can improve certain aspects of their reports that lead to legal claims from disgruntled lenders, borrowers and other parties.  We will also discuss emerging legal issues such as the FDIC, indemnification clauses and other contractual issues.

The chapter's fee for the seminar is $50 for members and $60 for nonmembers. 
Registration is via the Appraisal Institute's course system here.

Questions about registration should be directed to the Appraisal Institute's Central California Chapter at ccc.ai@hotmail.com or (661) 822-0322x4.

Appraisers who are insured by LIA for E&O through its Liberty Mutual program become eligible for a one-time discount on their E&O premium of $50 (for a $500K or $1m per claim policy) or $25 (for a $300k per claim policy) for completing the class.  This discount may be applied toward any payment due after the seminar.
