The photo above is taken by Kaye Beneke, Justin Skipton and Kalon deLuise, as we prepare for a session on injury ethics for next Monday's joint session of the Texas Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (TAPIA) and the Rocky Mountain Association of Public Insurance Adjusters ( RMAPIA).
This is what is on the website that describes the event:
The year is 2020. Fatal pandemic. Quarantine. Face masks. Sing Happy Birthday and wash your hands. Social distancing. Zoom meetings. Home office. Home school. Business stop. Business interruptions. Record unemployment. Social oro. Vandalism. Hail. Tornadoes. Hurricane season.
It's like we've entered the "fifth dimension" ̵1; The Twilight Zone! Who would be surprised to see Rod Serling around the next corner (hopefully with his own toilet paper!)?
Public adjusters are used to dealing with strange things to help policyholders in the home and business when disaster strikes. But so far, 2020 has taken strangeness to new heights!
A big shout goes to Kaye Beneke, who serves as the CEO of both associations, and the management of TAPIA and RMAPIA to host this event. They sent out a survey to previous participants to determine what public adjusters want to learn about. Teaching people what they feel they need to learn is a big step and all public adjustment associations should reach out to their membership for such insight.
I will not only appear on Monday but also on Wednesday, while presenting with Merlin. Legal lawyer Rene Sigman. Our topic will be " Claim Problems: Riots, Vandalism and Vacant Claims ." Here is a flyer describing all the sessions.
Deadline For security reasons, the deadline to register is midnight, Friday night. So do not wait. Sign up now. If you are a participant, you can also see the taped sessions later for credit.
