Ladies and Gentlemen, 
Registration for this event is now open! Please visit the OCA website to register for this event. It is one-of-a-kind, and the most fun CE seminar you can attend in the State of Florida. This years’ event will host the new state mandated 5-Hour UPDATE Course for ALL Adjusters and will incorporate topics in both the casualty and property arenas. The CE Seminar will conclude at approximately 2:00pm and open up into a Rib Cook-Off where cook-off teams will be ready and waiting for you! They are fighting for number 1, and you will be a judge! The afternoon will include networking, feasting, socializing, games, prizes and live music from Orlando’s own…JILLS CASHBOX! You don’t want to miss it! Registration fees are minimal for a 5-Hour CE class. Please register early. 

Sponsorship opportunities are also available for this event. It is without fail that sponsors really make these events possibly. Sponsorship opportunities are limited, so please sponsor early. And let’s not forget the cook-off teams!! Last year we sold out of space for cook-off teams and had to turn some away. Please if you are interested, download the information packet, fill out the appropriate paperwork and submit it with your entry fee. 

We are looking forward to another great event. We will see you there!!

National Association of Catastrophe Adjusters Membership Drive to 3/15/08

March 6, 2008

The National Association of Catastrophe adjusters has changed their membership drive deadline to a new deadline of March 15, 2008 for new and experienced adjusters as well as adjusting firms wishing to join (prior deadline was this past November).

I’ve written about this organization before after becoming quite impressed with them while attending the 2006 yearly convention. I was quite pleased to find such a professional organization holding a meeting that was equal in value to annual carrier claim conventions with their professionalism, opportunities to obtain CE credits for adjusters and I note this coming year (Jan 09) they will offer the National Flood NFIP certification classes as well as the California Earthquake certification.

Here is a link to their membership information! Won’t you consider joining this very worthwhile group? By getting your application in prior to the March 15, 2008 deadline, you will have the opportunity once approved for membership to be in their 2008 directory.

Again we appreciate the 2007 President, Woody Britton, for letting us know about the extension of this year’s registration deadline. We also wish a very successful year to incoming 2008 President, Angelo Cassanese.

Tomorrow is Postmark Deadline to get applications in to join NACA-National Assn of Catastrophe Adjusters

November 14, 2007

Special Thanks to President Woody Britton of NACA- National Association of Catastrophe Adjusters for providing us an update that tomorrow is the deadline to get your applications in for membership for this year. Here is a portion of his email which explains:

“If you get time, tomorrow is the deadline for NACA membership applications to be post marked, maybe drop a reminder in the pot for everyone. The class schedule for the convention is on line and the classes are filling well, so we are trying to encourage everyone to get going on registering. I know it has been slow, but these are the years that we need to stick together and meet with other adjusters and the vendors to try and get our names on their lists.”
We have an ongoing very popular topic over at ClaimSmentor for those blog readers who are members there.

In addition to tomorrow’s deadline to apply for 2008 membership, we strongly
encourage all adjusters, adjusting firms, carrier members, and other vendors
supporting the claim industry to participate in this year’s annual NACA
convention to be held in January 2008 in Myrtle Beach, SC. I had the pleasure to
attend the convention in 2007 in Dallas, TX and have become a strong supporter
of their program after experiencing the quality of the educational and
networking opportunities at their convention which was equivalent to attending
an annual major insurance carrier claim convention during my 28 years in claims
as staff.

Here is a link to the upcoming 2008 educational opportunities for the January 2008 convention taking place in Myrtle Beach, SC along with a few additional words from President Woody Britton:

“Enclosed is the link to the NACA educational sessions at this year’s convention. The classes this year are excellent. We also have lined up the accreditation for California Earthquake Authority.  This is the mandatory class you have to take prior to handling claims for them.

Overall, we are excited for the classes and the networking possibilities. It is a great arena to meet fellow adjusters and network your talents and skills to the vendors, face to face.

We look forward to seeing you there!!”

Woody Britton, AIC
