AIDA Reinsurance and Insurance Arbitration Society U.S. 2018 Fall Conference

Presented by AIDA Reinsurance and Insurance Arbitration Society, ARIAS•U.S.

About the Event

The Fall Conference will include a wide variety of substantive topics derived, as in years past, from proposals solicited directly from the ARIAS membership. The response was gratifying. By a wide margin we received far more proposals—twenty-two in all—for general session or break-out group presentations than could possibly be accommodated. The proposals were uniformly thoughtful, relevant and well-conceived, making the selection process both difficult and highly productive. After much debate, and with the invaluable assistance of our MCI partners Sara Meier and Lauren Harley, we settled upon a member-driven agenda which will cover an array of subjects ranging from a broad overview of legal and arbitral trends, market and legislative/regulatory developments to the always-welcome “Nuts and Bolts” practice seminars. As always, we will include an ethics session. We hope that you will find this year’s agenda to be stimulating, informative and, of course, enjoyable.
