(Southern Pines)….The 2021 Annual Conference Committee of the association held it’s first meeting to kick off planning for the NCCIA 2021 Annual Conference scheduled for August 30 through September 1 at the Washington Duke Inn on the campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
David Littlehale, Committee Chair said that the Committee is “excited to be back in planning mode for our 2021 Conference. We all missed being together in in 2020 and are ready to get started organizing an educational event that will allow us to bring our members together for an outstanding educational and networking event.”
“While the committee reviewed panel submissions from 2020 and found a number of them to continue to be pertinent, we believe that given the many changes in the industry during this Covid lock down year, that we would open a new program submission process for 2021.” He continued, “We want to be sure that our program contains up to date information that will be helpful to you in your business, including the impact of Covid on the industry.”
Committee member Mike Meehan told the Newsletter that the Committee is looking for submissions that deal with issues such as:
- A Case Study in How a Captive Supported My Business During a Pandemic, Emerging Trends in Captive Management,
- A Case Study on Managing Diverse Consultants Remotely Under Lock Down Operations and other topics you feel may be of interest to the industry.
- Growth of 3rd party risk in captive insurers; how are captives incorporating 3rd party risks? 3rd party risk in captive insurer vs. traditional insurer and what is the difference?
- Status of the Risk Retention Group Industry: growth/decline? Lines of business? Issues they face?
- Insurable risk vs business risk? (Example we were recently contacted about - Are punitive damages an insurable risk as punitive damages are to are awarded only if there has been proof of intentional bad acts, is insuring this risk a way for the insured to intentionally commit acts that were hurtful to others and evade financial penalty for doing so?)
- Lessons learned from COVID and steps taken to be better prepared for a pandemic.
- A discussion of the pros/cons of the Pandemic Risk Insurance Act, “PRIA”?
