Welcome to the March 2012 issue of the IAC VOICE!
President Susan R. Meyer is ready for spring, and she gives plenty of reasons to look forward to what will be happening at the IAC – including an invitation to a special event on March 20, 2012. Please see below for the details.
Our featured member benefit provider in this issue is Lockton Affinity, and Assistant Vice President Kevin Johnson explains the difference between "claims-made" liability insurance and "occurrence" liability insurance, and why you should care.

This month's Inside Scoop, Ask the Certifiers column answers the question, "In the last President's Message, it was mentioned that there is another level of certification. My recordings did not pass the first time I submit for certification. Will this new level be retroactive, and how will know if my sessions passed?"
