Risk Management and Liability Webinar
The IARCA Institute for Excellence is hosting a webinar on the liability that child welfare agencies carry and how the insurance market is responding to it. Sharon Pierce, Institute Board President, will be in discussion with Dennis Sutton, an Enterprise Risk Management Officer with Hawley and Associates. They will discuss some of the national trends and issues surrounding unmanaged liability and what various states are doing (or not doing) to improve the landscape.
The webinar is free but registration is required. A recorded version will be available for on-demand viewing beginning in 2020.
Dennis, the former CEO for West Virginia’s Children’s Home Society, is a national expert in protecting child welfare agencies from risk. He began sounding the alarm about the increasing our agencies are carrying and challenges that is creating in securing affordable general liability insurance. Hawley and Associates was the nation’s first brokerage service in the country focusing exclusively on finding insurance for adoption, foster care, and child welfare agencies.
