AIRROC Goes To Boston’s Back Bay…

On May 3, 2016, AIRROC hosted its Boston Regional Education Day. The partnership between AIRROC, Ernst & Young, and Stroock & Stroock & Lavan proved to be a great success with over 65 AIRROC members in attendance and a diverse set of relevant presentations to the industry. From the 22 nd floor of the Boston landmark formerly known as the John Hancock Tower (now 200 Clarendon), we spoke with attendees and sponsors to get some opinions and perspectives on the day.

EY appreciated the opportunity to host this event.  We had a very engaged audience and some great topics.  We started the day with an explosive presentation regarding the Insurance Digital Workplace and ended the day with an interactive session on the soon to be launched EY/AIRROC U.S. Runoff Survey.  All in all, a great day! A special thank you to RI Superintendent of Banking and Insurance, Elizabeth Dwyer, for taking the time to participate in the discussion regarding the Rhode Island Insurance Business Transfer and to Paul Brockman, our keynote speaker, for an interesting overview of Enstar.

All at Stroock express sincere appreciation to both AIRROC and EY for allowing us the opportunity to co-sponsor this fantastic event. The AIRROC Boston Education Day was not only informative and engaging, but the diversity of topics and active audience involvement made for a truly enjoyable event. We look forward to working with AIRROC on future programming and to continuing what has already proven to be a great partnership.

The AIRROC Boston Regional was great.  The presentations on Late Notice and Privilege were presented in a way that was easy to understand and I will be able to retain. I have heard these topics before, however these presentations were the best that I have heard so far.

AIRROC’s Boston Regional Education Day offered content that was rich and engaging. Covered topics ranged from recently trending digital implications on the industry to updates on more traditional reinsurance subjects, such as privilege/common interest doctrine and “late notice.” We also got an informative “101” on the recently enacted Rhode Island Insurance Regulation 68 and its benefits vis-à- vis corporate transfers for the runoff markets. Most importantly, the event brought together industry peers and provided a venue for quality interaction.

Once again, AIRROC has demonstrated that they can provide a dynamic, evolving agenda which is timely and topical.  For me, listening to and engaging with a panel composed of the architects and implementers of the Rhode Island Regulations was a great opportunity.  Further, the presentation of Enstar in the U.S. was very interesting and gave me a great perspective of their presence and practice.
