Thanks, FloodCo and Montana Logging Association!

We had TERRIFIC insurance continuing education classroom seminars in Bigfork and Kalispell last week, thanks to the folks at FloodCo of Whitefish and the Montana Logging Association in Kalispell.

Marina Cay Classroom framedLloy Griffing of FloodCo hosted three insurance CE seminars at the Marina Cay Resort in Bigfork on Monday, October 5th. Despite the dry subjects (Montana law, ethics, and cyber security), we had a terrific time and are looking forward to returning to the area in the spring for another FloodCo-sponsored event.

We spent the day on Tuesday, October 6 with Coleen, Erica, and John at the Montana Logging Association. These wonderful people were kind enough to host the day’s two Marina Cay view framedseminars: Insuring Mother Nature and Insurance Fraud.

We appreciate our clients, as well. If it weren’t for their enthusiastic invitations to return to Montana, and their faithful attendance at our classroom seminars, we wouldn’t be able to have this much fun … this often … in Montana.

Montana, Here I Come

Newsflash:

The response to my proposal for offering insurance continuing education classes in Missoula in September was SUCCESSFUL!  So, thanks to all those wonderful people who were able to receive my inquiry and respond so quickly, I’m in the process of negotiating conference space and mapping out the curriculum.

Of course, I need to submit everything to the Montana DOI for course approval, but I’m hoping to have that done within the next couple of weeks.  Once I’ve booked the hotel and scheduled the curriculum, I’ll put up a “Montana CE” page on the website for you to look things over and download a registration form.

Montana, here I come!

Shall I Head West to Montana?

I moved back to Massachusetts from Montana two years ago.  (Actually, my puppy and I headed out for the 2,700-mile drive on February 26, 2011.)  Since that time, many of the insurance professionals who attended the classroom insurance continuing education courses I offered during the 7 years I lived in Montana have contacted me to see when I would be returning.

Well, how can I resist all the love and devotion of those people … especially after all this time? In two words: I can’t.

I’ve decided to put together 2 days of classroom CE seminars in Missoula during the mid-September if enough people register for them.  Each day will offer two different seminars totaling 8 hours of CE credit.  At the moment, my plans for topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Flood Insurance (meeting FEMA training guidelines)
  • Healthcare Reform
  • Professional Liability (E&O, D&O, EPL, and Cyber)
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Mold
  • Terrorism

If you, or someone you know, are interested in attending and want to be included on my mailing list once I’ve settled on the curriculum and reserved the date and location, email me at Linda@LindaFaulkner.com
