CICs and CRMs Earn Update Credit at Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium

Dallas, TX – April 20 2011 – The Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium has been approved by The National Alliance for Education and Research as a qualified annual update for Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC) and Certified Risk Managers (CRM) certificate holders.

According to Richard Kerr, CEO and founder of MarketScout, “Enabling CICs and CRMs to receive credit for the required 20 hour annual update credit is a testament to the symposium and exceptional speakers we have assembled over the last five years. The National Alliance is proving they are constantly developing programs which enhance the learning experience for their designees.”

In 2007, the Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium was created by MarketScout as a medium to profile innovation in the insurance industry. The symposium is the only true conference for insurance innovation and is a must-attend event for every insurance professional interested in new concepts that provide a competitive advantage. Creative, forward-thinking insurers, intermediaries and agents participate in the symposium by sharing new ideas and concepts which will improve the process of insurance underwriting, distribution and technology. The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research supports entrepreneurialism and as such has joined with MarketScout in a collective effort to foster creativity and new thought in the insurance industry.
