The VU's June Lightning Learning series features two 20-minute sessions dedicated to HO Trust endorsements and legal liability. Even if you can't participate in the live sessions, you will receive a link to the on-demand recordings and can listen to them at your leisure. Register once and attend:
  • June 5 - Understanding the HO's Three Trust Endorsements
    One entity eligible for a HO policy is a Trust. However, ISO provides three trust endorsements - which one (or two) do you use? The answer depends on the situation. In this session we discuss the available endorsements and detail when each is to be used.
  • June 21 - How Does a "Person" Become Legally Liable
    Liability policies respond when an insured is legally required to pay for certain damages or injuries. Legal liability is liability imposed by the courts on the person or entity responsible for the injury or damage suffered by another party or individual. Such legal obligations (or liability) can arise from intentional acts, unintentional acts or contracts (express or implied) and generally deals with civil wrongs rather than criminal wrongs. Learn legal liability and what is required.
Consider presenting conference style for the entire agency to benefit. Please send any questions to VU staff.  

Be one of the first five with the correct answers and win a $5 gift card (Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Baskin Robbins, or Krispy Kreme).
