First Party Claims Conference Expands to the West Coast

January 13, 2013

The First Party Claims Conference (FPCC) has gone bicoastal for the second year. FPCC West, a one-day seminar that is similar in format to the two and a half day October east coast event, will take place on March 12 at the Marina del Rey Hotel in Marina del Rey (Los Angeles), Calif.

FPCC West, co-presented by the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) and the California Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (CAPIA), provides first party property insurance professionals with six continuing education (CE) credits in one day. CE credits are applicable for California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming. Attorneys will receive a CLE application packet, to include full program information, a certificate of course completion and a uniform CLE course approval application.

“With the success of FPCC, held the past four years outside Providence, Rhode Island, there has been a growing interest in expanding the program to the West Coast. As a means to accomplish this, NAPIA and CAPIA have joined with the organizers of FPCC for the second time to link its one-day March Insurance Seminar with the two-day October FPCC event,” said NAPIA Executive Director David Barrack.
