JOE’S WORK BEFORE JUNE 2016

The AAIS Main Event conference, 1995-2016
For 21 years, I planned the business program and recruited speakers for the AAIS Annual Conference, renamed the “Main Event” in 2007. This annual meeting brought insurance executives, industry leaders, and business partners (reinsurers and vendors) together with AAIS staff and board members to assess the strategic implications of insurance product development.

- 2014 AAIS Main Event report

AAIS presentations, 1999-2015
Over the course of my tenure at AAIS, I gave numerous presentations on technical topics for insurance product specialists. These are a few samples.
- 2015 PLRB pres on inland marine
- 2011-01 AAIS Boat & Yacht programs
- 2010-03 IJ Academy ag insurance seminar

Other AAIS work
Both Viewpoint and the Main Event developed into the core benefits of an “associate member” program, developed by my colleague and friend Rick Maka, that raised revenue from organizations seeking to reach out to AAIS members. Also, I developed and distributed press releases about developments at AAIS, and developed a series of AAIS Advisory notices that combined AAIS news with state regulatory announcements to create a growing repository of relevant information.
