Join us for an interactive keynote address featuring legal insight from insurance law expert Milton Thurm, Esq., administrator of the newly launched PIWA Hotline—a free service for PIWA members who need quick, practical guidance on current issues facing the insurance wholesaler. Thurm's decades of industry experience make him a unique resource for PIWA members, and he will share real-life examples that address some of the sticky and sensitive problems faced by the wholesale broker every day, such as:

  • The "claim chain"
  • How sweet is the corporate suite?
  • Key employees and confidentiality/noncompete agreements
  • Handling certificates of insurance—the new ACORD 855
