Virtual University

The Big "I" VU is the smarter way to build your knowledge base through online education and research with more than 18,000 pages to help you find answers to tough insurance questions.  

 
COMMERCIAL LINES
Condo Associations and the NFIP

"How does the association provide flood coverage when the value of the building exceeds the $250,000 per unit/per building limit allowed in the RCBAP? Do unit owners need to, or can they, purchase real property coverage to make up the difference?

PERSONAL LINES 
Insuring a Box of Air
From the Ask an Expert files: "Next week we close on a unit we are purchasing at the Silver Lining Condos and we need to get insurance in place. Can you give us a quote?"

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Building Inclusion Capacity within Your Agency
You've gotten the green light to start the very first diversity and inclusion initiatives within your agency. You're elated there is so much to do, there's so much impact you want to make, so where do you start?

AGENCY MANAGEMENT
How Can I Sell When I'm Not The Lowest Price
How many of you are driving used Yugos? Or wearing a suit you bought at a garage sale? Or watching an 8-inch black & white TV? You've got the picture. You don't always buy on the basis of low price, so why should you think that all your customers do?
