In most states, seminar hours qualify as continuing education credit towards your appraisal license. Additionally, attendees insured with LIA will receive a discount on their E&O insurance premium.

The Liability Prevention Seminars are presented by LIA's risk management team and claims counsel. Chapters who are interested in sponsoring a Liability Prevention Seminar should contact Peter Christensen at (800) 334-0652.
