This seminar is a fast-paced look at the personal and commercial lines insurance issues that have been created in the gig economy. The first section of the seminar looks at standard definitions and characteristics of the sharing and the gig economy, chiefly by using examples. Of course, the behemoth in the group is Uber. It is also the paradigm for the gig and sharing economy. Private drivers use their own private vehicles to act like a taxi service. Apps such as Touro permit private drivers to use their vehicles for rental, much like Avis or Hertz. The sharing economy is not limited to vehicles, however. In a similar vein, homeowners can use their residence as a hotel by renting it out for short periods of time via Airbnb or VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner).

Your instructor for this webinar is Big "I" Executive Director of Risk Management & Education, Christopher J. Boggs, CPCU, ARM, ALCM, LPCS, AAI, APA, CWCA, CRIS, AINS

Insurance agents do a bad job of explaining the concept of "replacement cost." We tend to tell clients they will get new stuff for old junk and while that may be partially true, partial truths get you sued.

One roadblock to replacement cost is building codes or what we insurance practitioners refer to as ordinances or laws. Unendorsed policies offer only a VERY limited amount of coverage for the increased costs to rebuild due to these ordinances or laws, and when your insured is forced to pay these additional costs out-of-pocket, they are going to be mad!

Trucking coverage and Motor Carrier coverage are very similar, but each is designed for different types of risks and somewhat different operations. This session focuses on the similarities of these coverage forms as well as the differences between them.

Primary vs. excess coverage is unique in trucking and motor carrier coverages because a contract can change the “natural order" of the policy. Which policy is primary and which is excess? It depends. And this can be different for the trailer. A key section of this class details primary vs. excess coverage.

What about the MCS-90? What does this endorsement do when it is attached to the policy? Many agents just throw it in without considering the ramifications. That's…bad. Learn the purpose and effect of the MCS-90.

Without using hyperbole, thousands of certificates of insurance (COIs) are issued every day; and, again without hyperbole, most of them are issued improperly. In fact, your agency may have issued an improper certificate as recently as this morning.

What is it about COIs that can get an agency in trouble? If there were just one or two things, it would make your job a whole lot easier, but in reality, there are about 27 different ways a COI can get you in trouble. OK, so 27 isn't an exact number, but you get the idea. A "simple" COI is a potentially dangerous weapon that can be used against your agency.

Eleven years have passed since ISO promulgated major changes to the Homeowners' program. There have been several reactive changes during this period, but in 2022, ISO introduced a multistate/nationwide filing that results in several major changes to the HO program.

Many of the changes in this new filing are the direct result of the work done by the Big 'I' Technical Affairs Committee (TAC).

In this session, the Virtual University highlights and details what you can expect from this long-awaited filing. Don't be caught unprepared when your carriers adopt this form. You WILL want to know what has changed and what options are now available for your insureds.

Insurance is always easy…until the claim arrives. Then we start second-guessing ourselves and hope, if not pray that all the right coverages are correct.  This course will take a detailed look at some of the more common mistakes made when writing Personal Lines coverage and how the claims adjusters responded.  We will review topics such as:

  • UBER & LYFT
  • Delivery issues
  • Drones
  • VRBO

Eleven years have passed since ISO promulgated major changes to the Homeowners' program. There have been several reactive changes during this period, but in 2022, ISO introduced a multistate/nationwide filing that results in several major changes to the HO program.

Many of the changes in this new filing are the direct result of the work done by the Big 'I' Technical Affairs Committee (TAC).

In this session, the Virtual University highlights and details what you can expect from this long-awaited filing. Don't be caught unprepared when your carriers adopt this form. You WILL want to know what has changed and what options are now available for your insureds.

Without using hyperbole, thousands of certificates of insurance (COIs) are issued every day; and, again without hyperbole, most of them are issued improperly. In fact, your agency may have issued an improper certificate as recently as this morning.

What is it about COIs that can get an agency in trouble? If there were just one or two things, it would make your job a whole lot easier, but in reality, there are about 27 different ways a COI can get you in trouble. OK, so 27 isn't an exact number, but you get the idea. A "simple" COI is a potentially dangerous weapon that can be used against your agency.

Insurance agents do a bad job of explaining the concept of "replacement cost." We tend to tell clients they will get new stuff for old junk and while that may be partially true, partial truths get you sued.

One roadblock to replacement cost is building codes or what we insurance practitioners refer to as ordinances or laws. Unendorsed policies offer only a VERY limited amount of coverage for the increased costs to rebuild due to these ordinances or laws, and when your insured is forced to pay these additional costs out-of-pocket, they are going to be mad!

Trucking coverage and Motor Carrier coverage are very similar, but each is designed for different types of risks and somewhat different operations. This session focuses on the similarities of these coverage forms as well as the differences between them.

Primary vs. excess coverage is unique in trucking and motor carrier coverages because a contract can change the “natural order" of the policy. Which policy is primary and which is excess? It depends. And this can be different for the trailer. A key section of this class details primary vs. excess coverage.

What about the MCS-90? What does this endorsement do when it is attached to the policy? Many agents just throw it in without considering the ramifications. That's…bad. Learn the purpose and effect of the MCS-90.

This seminar is a fast-paced look at the personal and commercial lines insurance issues that have been created in the gig economy. The first section of the seminar looks at standard definitions and characteristics of the sharing and the gig economy, chiefly by using examples. Of course, the behemoth in the group is Uber. It is also the paradigm for the gig and sharing economy. Private drivers use their own private vehicles to act like a taxi service. Apps such as Touro permit private drivers to use their vehicles for rental, much like Avis or Hertz. The sharing economy is not limited to vehicles, however. In a similar vein, homeowners can use their residence as a hotel by renting it out for short periods of time via Airbnb or VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner).

Have you ever wondered what makes some culture engines that produce excellent results year after year?  Have you ever seen bosses that people would do almost anything for and wondered what their secret was?   Those bosses and organizations that build a people-centric culture understand that it is the culture they create that drives success…not the opposite. 

Jeff’s insight as an HR Leader, “headhunter,” coach and US Army veteran made him realize that a culture created by a leader or an organization that had people as the foundation delivered sustained results year after year.

Through real-life stories and interactive participation, Jeff has created a program that helps participants understand how building an engaged and loyal workforce will produce sustained results.  

This program is an “idea” program but it is also a “process” program.  Participants will understand the importance of building an engaged and loyal workforce as well as learn actionable steps they can use to start building this type of culture.

Eleven years have passed since ISO promulgated major changes to the Homeowners' program. There have been several reactive changes during this period, but in 2022, ISO introduced a multistate/nationwide filing that results in several major changes to the HO program.

Many of the changes in this new filing are the direct result of the work done by the Big 'I' Technical Affairs Committee (TAC).

In this session, the Virtual University highlights and details what you can expect from this long-awaited filing. Don't be caught unprepared when your carriers adopt this form. You WILL want to know what has changed and what options are now available for your insureds.

Without using hyperbole, thousands of certificates of insurance (COIs) are issued every day; and, again without hyperbole, most of them are issued improperly. In fact, your agency may have issued an improper certificate as recently as this morning.

What is it about COIs that can get an agency in trouble? If there were just one or two things, it would make your job a whole lot easier, but in reality, there are about 27 different ways a COI can get you in trouble. OK, so 27 isn't an exact number, but you get the idea. A "simple" COI is a potentially dangerous weapon that can be used against your agency.

Insurance agents do a bad job of explaining the concept of "replacement cost." We tend to tell clients they will get new stuff for old junk and while that may be partially true, partial truths get you sued.

One roadblock to replacement cost is building codes or what we insurance practitioners refer to as ordinances or laws. Unendorsed policies offer only a VERY limited amount of coverage for the increased costs to rebuild due to these ordinances or laws, and when your insured is forced to pay these additional costs out-of-pocket, they are going to be mad!

Trucking coverage and Motor Carrier coverage are very similar, but each is designed for different types of risks and somewhat different operations. This session focuses on the similarities of these coverage forms as well as the differences between them.

Primary vs. excess coverage is unique in trucking and motor carrier coverages because a contract can change the “natural order" of the policy. Which policy is primary and which is excess? It depends. And this can be different for the trailer. A key section of this class details primary vs. excess coverage.

What about the MCS-90? What does this endorsement do when it is attached to the policy? Many agents just throw it in without considering the ramifications. That's…bad. Learn the purpose and effect of the MCS-90.

Many of the changes in this new filing are the direct result of the work done by the Big 'I' Technical Affairs Committee (TAC).

In this session, the Virtual University highlights and details what you can expect from this long-awaited filing. Don't be caught unprepared when your carriers adopt this form. You WILL want to know what has changed and what options are now available for your insureds.

Insurance agents do a bad job of explaining the concept of "replacement cost." We tend to tell clients they will get new stuff for old junk and while that may be partially true, partial truths get you sued.

One roadblock to replacement cost is building codes or what we insurance practitioners refer to as ordinances or laws. Unendorsed policies offer only a VERY limited amount of coverage for the increased costs to rebuild due to these ordinances or laws, and when your insured is forced to pay these additional costs out-of-pocket, they are going to be mad!

Trucking coverage and Motor Carrier coverage are very similar, but each is designed for different types of risks and somewhat different operations. This session focuses on the similarities of these coverage forms as well as the differences between them.

Primary vs. excess coverage is unique in trucking and motor carrier coverages because a contract can change the “natural order" of the policy. Which policy is primary and which is excess? It depends. And this can be different for the trailer. A key section of this class details primary vs. excess coverage.

What about the MCS-90? What does this endorsement do when it is attached to the policy? Many agents just throw it in without considering the ramifications. That's…bad. Learn the purpose and effect of the MCS-90.

Without using hyperbole, thousands of certificates of insurance (COIs) are issued every day; and, again without hyperbole, most of them are issued improperly. In fact, your agency may have issued an improper certificate as recently as this morning.

What is it about COIs that can get an agency in trouble? If there were just one or two things, it would make your job a whole lot easier, but in reality, there are about 27 different ways a COI can get you in trouble. OK, so 27 isn't an exact number, but you get the idea. A "simple" COI is a potentially dangerous weapon that can be used against your agency.

Contractor risks are unique. Agents must understand these unique risks, exposures, and coverages to properly manage their contractor clients. This session focuses on five of the most common contractor risk exposures:

  • Contractual Risk Transfer
  • Properly Extending Insured Status
  • Business Auto Issues
  • Misuse of the Absolute Pollution Exclusion
  • Professional and Pollution Exposures Faced by Contractors

A lot of material is covered in this fast-moving, two-hour session. Agents will be better prepared to analyze the risks presented by their contractor clients and know how to properly respond to their coverage needs and claim questions.
