Navigating the Future with 20/20 Vision

Join us at the IRUA’s Annual Members Meeting & Conference where professionals in reinsurance will gather to discuss the current issues facing the industry in our headline panel: “The Reinsurance Leaders’ Vision of the Future.”   We will also be hosting a mix of brokers and reinsurance buyers to discuss challenges and expectations from both sides of a reinsurance transaction on our “Reinsurance Market Panel”.

In addition to IRUA’s General Session, the conference will have separate interactive workshop tracks available for Property and Casualty.  Attendees will have the opportunity to pick from a selection of topics including: Intellectual Property Insurance, Large Property Losses, Property Marine/Energy, 2019 Catastrophes, Workers Compensation Trends, Moss Torts, Child Victim Liability, Management/Transactional Liability, among others.

The program will open with our traditional Annual Golf Outing on Monday, April 6th followed by the opening night reception with a keynote speaker.  The educational sessions will be a full-day on Tuesday, April 7th and the program will conclude with a casual networking “Fun in the Sun” reception and dinner.

This will be an informative learning and networking experience that everyone in attendance will benefit from.  This program can be submitted for review to the Institutes®CPCU – Risk and Insurance Management for CPCU credit.  Registration and hotel accommodations will open shortly so keep an eye open for further details on the program agenda, registration and sponsorships opportunities available.

LUNCH & LEARN:  ALL ABOUT BIOMETRIC INFORMATION AND PRIVACY

February 13, 2020, Trans Re, NYC

There is a new wave of class actions being filed against employers and other companies who collect biometric information. What is Biometric Information? Biometric information includes eye scan, fingerprints, voiceprints, and face scans. The Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) regulates the privacy and protection of one’s biometric information. BIPA related class actions may impact General Liability, Professional and Management Liability policies, Cyber and Workers’ Comp policies. Underwriters and Claims professionals need to take into account new exposures created by BIPA.  Do you know everything related to BIPA exposures?

Lisa Handler Ackerman, an attorney in Wilson Elser’s Chicago office, will discuss BIPA and its potential exposures during this Lunch and Learn.  BIPA, which is currently the only state law protecting biometrics containing a private cause of action thus leading to a surge of class action litigation arising under the Act.  The discussion will cover the specific legal issues litigated under BIPA and liability for private entities such as Facebook, Shutterfly and Google; employers; and biometric time clock vendors.
