March 2020 State CE Videoconferences

March 24, 2020
9:00 AM CDT - 4:00 PM CDT

Varied locations throughout Nebraska

Like many of you, we have been monitoring the impact of COVID-19, the Coronavirus, in our communities and its impact on upcoming meetings.

Unfortunately, Nebraska Public TV (from where the videoconfences originate) is restricting entrance to the facility to only essential personnel -- and one of our planned speakers also has had to cancel due to corporate travel restrictions. Taking that into consideration as well as the health and safety of our members, we have decided to cancel the March 24th State CE Videoconferences.

If you are a non-member and have paid the guest fee online, the entire fee will be refunded to your credit/debit card.

We hope to re-schedule the event at another date and/or will be looking at other options, such as a series of webinars, to deliver the content -- so watch for email updates about this and also other meetings and events on our schedule. We will continue to have an open line of communication with our meeting venues, future presenters and the Board of Directors regarding the health and safety of all attendees at future events. 

Earn up to 6 hours of CE at our State CE Day -- streaming live throughout Nebraska on Tuesday, March 24, 2020!

MORNING SESSION - 9AM to 12Noon Central Time (8-11AM in Gering) - Three great 1-hour programs as follows:

Program #1 - "Hoarding" and Its Impact on Insurance (Presented by Cindy Gessert - Business Development Manager, Paul Davis Restoration)

This program will, in equal parts - inform, entertain and appall you!  Hoarding is a concern to insurance providers, especially when damages or problems related to hoarding are not excluded in the policy. There are several important risks associated with hoarding, property damage and insurance claims involving hoarders.  This program will provide one hour of GENERAL CE Credit.

Program #2 -- What Every Financial Advisor Should Know About Reverse Mortgages (Presented by Harlan Accola - National Reverse Mortgage Director, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp.)

Many people are not aware of the benefits and new guidelines coming out related to reverse mortgages.  This class is designed to get you thinking and you will be on your seat when we explain the three milk bucket approach!  This topic is relevant when it comes to estate planning, preserving assets, and helping some older adults obtain financial independence and peace of mind.  This program will provide one hour of LIFE CE Credit.

Program #3 -- The SECURE Act 2019 - What You Need to Know (Presented by Steve Chmelka - Sr. Retirement Strategies Consultant, Pacific Life Ins. Co.)

This course will provide you with a clear understanding of certain provisions of the recently passed SECURE Act of 2019 that will affect individuals and businesses large and small. This program will provide one hour of LIFE CE Credit.

The Morning Session will also provide up to two hours of credit for CFP, CPE (accounting), CLE (Legal) and PACE, pending approvals.

Full-day attendees will be on their own for a 1-hour lunch break.

AFTERNOON SESSION - 1 to 4PM Central Time (12Noon to 3PM in Gering)

The Ethical Code of Conduct (Presented by Laurie VanderWal)

This thought-provoking course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to assess the continuing shifts in morals, ethics and the laws that govern our country and communities with respect to our conduct as insurance professionals. The course highlights how enhanced technology capabilities in an information-driven global world requires thoughtful and ongoing ethical decision making to confirm the industry’s ethical line matches the consumer and culture of today. This program will provide three hours of INSURANCE ETHICS Credit.

The Afternoon Session also will provide credit for CFP, CPE (accounting) and CLE (Legal) ethics credit, pending approvals. 

All programs (AM and PM) will provide insurance credits for both Nebraska and Iowa.
