A special PIWA thank you to:
PIWA returns to Manhattan in 2012—with an informative program geared toward "junior brokers" and anyone who wants a refresher on working in a hard-market environment. It's a great chance for your employees to learn from and network with company representatives. Block the afternoon and tell your staff.
2-3:15 p.m. Additional insured endorsements and complications
Perhaps no other type of policy amendment requires more effort—and raises more questions—for brokers and underwriters than additional insured endorsements. In this session, Arthur Flitner will take us on a practical tour of the most commonly used AI endorsements and facilitate a discussion that will draw out the experience and wisdom of the audience to bring clarity to this challenging topic. So come prepared to share your expertise and questions.
3:30-5 p.m. Selling in a hard market
The market change has begun. Are you and your producers prepared? Discuss the impact of the changing marketplace on your operation and how your sales staff can be uniquely positioned to prosper as more retailers look to the excess-line market in the hard market. Gain the perspective of company, wholesaler and retailers … perfect for anyone who hasn’t yet worked in a hard-market environment, and for those who realize that the hard market of 2012 will not be the same as cycles of the past.
5-7 p.m. Networking cocktail reception
Be sure to attend to network with company representatives, wholesalers and industry representatives. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
