Webinar: Managing Professional Exposures as a Small Project Practitioner

Earn 1 HSW Credit

The AIA Trust sponsored a one-hour Webinar on Managing Professional Exposures as a Small Project Practitioner for 1 HSW Credit, conducted by Frank Musica, Assoc. AIA, Esq. of the Risk Management Department of Victor.  Frank offers a wealth of experience in design and management of architecture firms and currently provides advisory and informational services to the many design firms insured through Victor in the CNA design professional liability program.

This valuable webinar is intended to educate participants about identifying and managing the professional risks faced by small firms.

You may listen to the recording and review the handout for credit.
