Following up on my prior blog post, Assignment of Benefits – Blog Series, Part 12: Rhode Island, I wanted to take the opportunity to remind our readers that the First-Party Claims Conference is next month in Warwick, Rhode Island!

The First-Party Claims Conference (FPCC) will be hosting its annual meeting in Warwick, Rhode Island. The FPCC is a nationally recognized provider of education specifically designed for adjusters, public adjusters, attorneys and others in the first party property insurance claims community.”

The conference will take place from October 16-18, 2016, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and will consist of three days of education sessions. Public adjusters and attorneys can earn up to fifteen credits for continuing education (CE) or continuing legal education (CLE), respectively. Credits can be earned in as many as nineteen states.

Throughout the conference, many different types of classes are being offered by attorneys, adjusters, and experts. I will be presenting a class entitled: Assignment of Benefits and Contractor Misrepresentations. Additionally, my colleagues Chip Merlin, Robert Trautmann, Verne Pedro, Edward Eshoo, Javier Delgado, Christina Phillips, and Nicole Vinson will also be presenting on various topics. Several networking receptions are also planned for each day.

FPCC is a fantastic event to learn and to meet others in the industry and sharpen your skills. If you need any additional information please visit:
