Webinar: Now that I’ve been on your side longer…

Please join us for another IRES webinar: "Now that I've been on your side longer..."

This session will be presented by Mark Plesha of the INS Companies, who presented the webinar "Now that I am on your side..." back in June of 2014. This new webinar will continue that theme, but is now enhanced by his 3 years of experience, mostly as an EIC.

Recall that after over 20 years playing "Defense", Mark now plays "Offense" for the INS Companies. Hear some of his observations gleaned from working both sides of the line, now including his EIC perspective. What are some of the things he always wanted examiners to do, that he can now do, and vice versa. Learn of some seemingly insignificant very early steps that can ensure a smooth exam. How you can tell if the Company Contact will be a help or a hindrance. The Engagement Letter & Coordinators Handbook arrives; then what happens? How to ensure the Company really understands and will follow them. How to get a quicker turn-around on Crits and the Draft Report. And, how to convince the Company all of this is in their best interest. 

The session is open to all IRES General and Sustaining members and is eligible for IRES Continuing Education Credits for the individuals who've preregistered for the webinar. 

Due to increasing demand for these webinars, we kindly request that if you will have multiple individuals attending the session in a meeting room, to only register one person for the session. After the session, the one individual can send in an attendance sheet to the webinar coordinator for CE’s for all individuals who attended.

Call-in details will be distributed ahead of the webinar.
