Brian S. GoodmanNAPIA 2019 Annual Meeting
Thursday, June 13, 8:45am - 9:45am  PDT
Silverado Resort & Spa
Napa, CA

Kramon & Graham principal Brian Goodman will lead the Professional Education Session at the 2019 National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters Annual Meeting in Napa, California. Brian will present updates on the association's progress to curb the unauthorized practice of public adjusting and assignment of benefits. UPPA and AOB continues to dominate discussion within the property insurance industry. A crime in 20 states, UPPA carries criminal penalties in some jurisdictions. Outright fraud is only part of the problem. Unscrupulous negotiations, shoddy workmanship, and abandoned projects often leave storm-damaged properties in far worse condition than when work began.
