To Gladly Persevere: Pinnacle University 2021
Multiple May 07, 2021 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, Community Involvement

At least two things came to fruition from the 1960s science fiction TV shows many of us watched as children.

Second, although we still don’t have flying cars, it is possible to conduct meetings and converse with people miles away while looking at a screen. This came in quite handy as we planned our 2021 Pinnacle University program.

Buying a vehicle can be stressful.  The sheer number of decisions facing a potential car purchaser can be overwhelming. One choice a buyer must make at the dealership is whether to purchase an extended service contract (or extended warranty).  At the 2017 Pinnacle U conference, we partnered with a student from Illinois State University for a presentation on auto warranties and extended service contracts (ESCs).
