Mary Fortson has been quite busy working with Jim Beneke and Art Jansen reinstating the non-profit and corporate status of TAPIA for the past several months. With that accomplished, there will be an introductory meeting to which all licensed Texas public insurance adjusters are welcome and encouraged to attend immediately following the Merlin Law Group Hurricane Ike–What a Difference a Year Makes Seminar on September 11, 2009.

Recognizing that public adjusters need to have a relationship with the Texas Department of Insurance, Jack Evins from TDI will speak during lunch and be there to answer questions. Our experience is that regulators like to hear what is going on in the field and will follow-up on proof of abuses reported to them and verified by others.

The seminar will end at 2 pm and the TAPIA introductory meeting will start immediately thereafter.

So, if you are a Texas public insurance adjuster, September 11, 2009, is an important professional date for you to be in Houston to learn and share information and ideas.
