The Inland Marine Underwriters Association (IMUA) annual meeting will be held in Atlanta, May 19-22, 2013 and will feature Parallel Track.
The Parallel Track addition is specifically focused on newer, less experienced inland marine underwriting and claims personnel. Continuing education credits will be offered to assist producers and other interested parties in meeting their state insurance licensing requirements.
The Parallel Track, which was first introduced two years ago at the association’s Chicago Annual Meeting, will consist of a series of seminars and workshops patterned after the IMUA’s Intro to Inland Marine Course and will run parallel to the more in-depth educational sessions being presented.
The keynote address will be by Dan North, Chief Economist for Euler Hermes North America, who will be addressing attendees on what lies ahead for both the US and global economies and how it is impacted by monetary and fiscal policies. “Parallel Track” participants will also have the opportunity to interact with more seasoned industry professionals and participate in Annual Meeting receptions, recreational activities and trade show.
Among the topics to be covered by the “Parallel Track” are an Introduction to The Nation-Wide Marine Definition; how inland marine is structured and operates at the company level; and line of business specifics dealing with transportation, builders risk and construction insurance.
The IMUA’s 83rd 2013 Annual Meeting, is slated for Buckhead Atlanta’s Intercontinental Hotel May 19-22, 2013.
