Chicagoland-Wisconsin ERA members gathered on April 7, 2017, for an educational business insurance program. The discussion was led by Byron Spencer, CEO of Norman-Spencer International.

Spencer discussed business insurance needs and his experiences in the field. He also gave a recap of “ERA RepProtect” – ERA’s newest insurance resource for manufacturers’ representatives.

The insurance program includes everything from commercial general liability to property, auto, cyber, workers’ compensation, and unique to ERA, professional liability for the electronics representative whose client services include expert advice normally excluded under the general liability policy.

“Business insurance is a necessary consideration for all enterprises and there are some aspects of the rep model that may call for coverages unique to ERA. This chapter program provided some answers to help our member representatives make informed decisions,” said Tom Trzeciak, president of the Chicagoland-Wisconsin ERA Chapter.
