We Need Your Input Concerning What You Would Like
Covered at 2013 E&O Loss Control Seminars

If you have ever attended one of the annual errors and omissions loss control seminars that we present, you know that during both the live and telecast seminars we cover the topics we believe you should be aware of, and we take questions from the attendees that we answer either during the seminars or as a follow-up afterwards. This is the way that the annual E&O loss control seminars have been presented for the past 25 years. During recent discussions with the IIABNY education department, the suggestion was made that we should try something new for the 2013 annual E&O seminars. Instead of us designing a seminar outline based on issues and topics we believe you should be aware of, we would instead like the input of IIABNY members concerning the issues, topics and questions that you would like us to address at the 2013 annual E&O seminars. Accordingly, we are writing this issue of The E&O Report to extend an invitation to every IIABNY member to let us know about any issues, topics or questions that you would like us to consider including as part of the 2013 annual E&O seminars.

Usually, we start thinking about what we will do for next year’s annual E&O loss control seminars right after we finish presenting the seminars in a given year. Ordinarily, we prepare the outline for the annual E&O seminars by the beginning of December for the seminars we will present in the spring of the following year. This planning and preparation allow sufficient time for the approval of the seminar by the New York State Department of Financial Services and then for the marketing of the seminars to IIABNY members once the outline has been approved.

We encourage all IIABNY members to think about any items they would like us to consider including in the seminar outline. Your suggestions for issues, topics and questions should be emailed to me, James Keidel, by email no later than Nov. 1. Please be sure to type "2013 Annual E&O Seminars" (without quote marks) in the subject line of the email. I will then use the input we receive to develop the outline for the 2013 seminars.

In addition to changing the way we develop the seminar outline, as set forth above, we will also incorporate other new and exciting changes to the way the 2013 seminars will be presented. We will share those changes with you as we finalize them and as the seminars get closer.

We believe the annual E&O seminars are a very important loss control tool available to IIABNY members. IIABNY members are unique because New York is the only state where the E&O loss control seminars are changed every year to reflect current trends and issues. Changing the seminars annually in this way helps set both IIABNY and its members apart from others when it comes to E&O loss control. We also believe the changes we will adopt for the 2013 seminars will help make them some of the most informative and entertaining we have ever presented for IIABNY members.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your ideas with us.
