'Context Is Key: Influencing Outcomes in Protection Evaluation' Convention Session Set for Sept. 25 by Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters Society – InsuranceNewsNet


MALVERN, Pennsylvanai, Aug. 17 (TNSeve) — The Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters Society has scheduled a conference session as part of its In2Risk 2021 on Sept. 25, 2021, entitled “Context Is Key: Influencing Outcomes in Coverage Analysis”:

According to the agency website:

Four key perspectives influence outcomes in coverage analysis: relationships, the claim, the policy, and the court. Join this session, presented by two attorney CPCUs, to gain a broader understanding of these perspectives and better equip yourself to handle your role in any domain. Participants will apply concepts to two case studies and learn how key stakeholders view coverage issues–from policy formation through ultimate coverage adjudication in court.
