12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET



1 non-IDCEC hour



Derrick Leue, President of PROLINK Ltd.

This one-hour webinar, offered by PROLINK, will help members gain a better understanding of how liability insurance protection plays an essential role in the strength and vitality of their business. By knowing how and when your coverage responds to lawsuits, the resulting financial devastation can be reduced or even prevented. Attendees will gain awareness of the types of exposure they face as design professionals. Understanding the exposures and proper risk management techniques will enable members to exercise better business practices in order to minimize the risk of experiencing claims, and the resulting damage to their reputation and business operations. PROLINK was appointed as the manager of the IDC professional liability insurance program in 2012.

We will accept your AAA Professional Development Transcript in lieu of inputting them onto the IDCEC website. We only ask that you note which are HSW, IDCEC, and non-IDCEC for us, and that you still meet the number of CEU hours required by IDA.


If you are still short of CEUs for the last reporting cycle ending on December 31st, 2018, there are many online courses you can look into.
