Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 03, 2012


AgentsofAmerica.ORG (AOA) announced today that it has started the development of two additional books in its Insurance Agents & Brokers Risk Management Program series. The release of Book Two is planned for the Spring of 2113 and will have multiple distinct chapters to clearly identify the E&O issues and exposures related to the typical new and renewal sales process within insurance agencies. Book Three is planned for release in the Fall of 2113 and will provide an extensive review of the errors and omissions exposures that agents need to be aware of when selling and servicing the majority of today’s insurance coverages. Both books will represent a collaborative effort by top E&O insurance attorneys and experts from across the country.


Book One was just completed and will be available for sale thru Amazon and Barnes & Noble the week of December 17th. The complete table of contents, along with author bios, may be found at "Meet the Authors."


[ Professor James Kallman of St. Edwards’ University will serve as the Editor in Chief. “Due to tremendous enthusiasm that has been generated as the result of the Book One, we are excited to announce the plans for the two additional books. It is our goal to provide today’s agencies with the tools and the insight to help them effectively manage their E&O exposure. We couldn’t envision any one better than Curtis Pearsall, Pearsall Associates Inc. to take the lead in the development of Book Two and Three. His vast years of experience in this field will ensure a top level professional product. He is truly an expert on this class of business.”


As with Book One, AoA’s Editorial Board for Book Two includes Minneapolis E&O defense attorney Britton Weimer of Jones Satre & Weimer PLLC, Professor Andrew Whitman of the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, E&O insurance expert Curtis Pearsall of Pearsall Associates Inc., Roy Little, President and CEO at Insurance Educational Association and Angelo J. Gioia Executive Director & Publisher of AgentsofAmerica.ORG.


“In my years in managing a leading Agents E&O program, it was very clear to me that agents are working hard to manage their E&O exposure.” says Curtis Pearsall. “ Providing them with practical information and knowledge will help them to better understand the issues and the means to manage those exposures. Building a solid defense should an E&O litigation arise involves everyone in the agency. Through their efforts and commitment to a strong E&O culture, good results will happen. The development of Book Two clearly shows AOA’s commitment to providing continuing education program for insurance agents and brokers. As with Book One, we are also developing a CE component. This is a must for agencies and carriers alike.”


Book Two provides E&O loss control insight and techniques arising from the sales and service of insurance products. The book will detail many of the E&O exposures for agencies during the pre-sale, sale and post sale periods addressing issues such as the legal duties of both the agents and their customers, education of both the staff and customers, account review, Exposure Analysis Checklists and the power of a signed application.

Book Three will detail the major E&O issues when writing coverages such as personal and commercial auto, homeowners, comprehensive general liability, commercial property, directors & officers, professional liability, flood, employment practices liability and umbrella. For all of the coverages discussed, best practices concepts will be provided. “Each of the various insurance coverages has its own distinct issues that agents need to be aware of. This book will be a great resource for all levels of agency staff to assist them as they market and discuss these coverages with their clients” says Curtis Pearsall. See "Proposped Table of Contents".
