The purpose of the SILA Foundation is to provide an educational forum for the public in financial services, specifically insurance licensing and securities registration. Its purpose will be to develop and improve individuals’ capabilities within the financial services industry through educational materials, courses, public discussion groups, forums, panels, lectures, personal career development, mentoring, job training, job fairs or other programs as determined by the SILA Foundation Board of Trustees.
Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, October 26th 1:00pm to 2:00pm ET and sign up today to attend this important and informative FREE webinar on the subject of: Initiatives by State Securities Regulators to Protect Senior Investors with the noted expert on the subject, Joseph Brady, Executive Director of the North American Securities Administrators Association, Inc. (NASAA) serving as our speaker.
Statistics show that the population of persons aged 65 and older is growing at a dramatic pace. This population also controls a significant percentage of personal wealth in the U.S. These facts coupled with the fact that state securities regulators are investigating more cases involving complaints made by seniors have led NASAA to step up efforts to protect senior investors. This presentation will cover recent initiatives among state securities regulators to tackle elder financial exploitation including the approval of a model act that provides the securities industry and regulators with new tools to help combat elder financial exploitation.
Sign up here. You will enjoy hearing this important update and your job will be benefited by the pertinent and timely information shared.
This Webinar is open to all interested parties (members and non-members), free of charge, and is approved for Virtual Chapter credit for the SILA Designation requirement.

If you want to hear an expert explanation about trends related to adjuster licensing and regulation and an entertaining on-point job description of the adjuster in a rapidly changing claims industry, then you MUST REGISTER FOR and ATTEND the latest SILA webinar titled “The Adjuster – Role, Licensing and Administration” with the renowned speaker Adam Gardiner, Co-Founder of AdjusterPro on Thursday, August 18, 2016 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm EST.
This presentation gives an overview, from an adjuster’s perspective, of the role that claims in general and the adjuster in particular play in the insurance industry. The presentation provides a general description of what adjusters do and how claims work, followed by a reflection on trends related to the licensing, regulation and job description of the adjuster in a rapidly changing claims industry.
Our speaker, Adam Gardiner is the co-founder of AdjusterPro, LLC. Adam began his career in the insurance industry in 2004 as a catastrophe adjuster, deployed to hurricane Charlie in South Florida. In 2005, Adam founded AdjusterPro and teamed up with co-founder Daniel Kerr to meet a need in the industry for a reliable source for adjuster-related licensing and regulation information — particularly regarding licensing rules and reciprocity — and training that actually helped people become more successful claims adjusters. AdjusterPro is now the industry’s largest adjuster-specific licensing and training company, and a trusted source for adjuster-specific education and information. Adam now lives in Dallas, TX with his wife and four daughters, acting as an executive member for AdjusterPro and speaking on leadership and innovation in business and the evolving claims industry.
