Webinar • Thursday, September 22, 2022 • 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE Credit 


When it comes to protecting against potential risks and exposure, many associations believe they are fully covered by insurance. Unfortunately, they discover — the hard way — that that the limits they carried were insufficient or their claim falls under policy exclusions.

How well does your insurance program address your association’s potential exposure and total cost of risk?

This TRENDS webinar shows you how to find and fix potential exposure— in time to make a difference.
