Jun 28 - Jul 1, 2020 | Amelia Island, Fla.

Agenda

NAMIC has made the decision to move all in-person events for remainder of 2020 to a virtual setting, including the Annual Convention in Boston scheduled for September where we had planned to celebrate NAMIC’s 125th Anniversary. The health and well-being of NAMIC members and staff are the most important factors in considering our options and hosting large event gatherings in these times is just not feasible.

Those who have already registered for an event will receive a separate communication with the details of transferring to a virtual event. All members will soon receive information about exciting new ways to experience what they have come to expect from NAMIC events.

      Advanced analytics and the explosion of data are resulting in new tools for companies to leverage to support growth goals and increase revenue.

With the industry facing increased profitability challenges, it is vital that companies make the most of their internal and external data sets.

    5. Weather Trends: Tornadoes, Hail, Flooding… Oh My!
      The speculative links between extreme weather events and climate change range from possible and plausible to misleading and unknown. The best scientific advice is to stick to peer-reviewed science and the data. From a natural catastrophe perspective, the last couple years were extraordinary. They also raised several important questions: Is the insurance industry going to be affected further by extreme events? How will these events shape the trends for the respective perils? Are there any outcomes from the devastation that can be positively applied to the insurance industry? This session will dive into extreme weather risk perception, walk through the hard facts of extreme weather event trends, and link what we know now and how that will impact the insurance industry in terms of future loss.
