Please join us for the Community Recovery and
Resilience Leadership Forum

October 24, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri

We're bringing leaders in the risk mitigation community together to discuss:

  • The "Big One": It's coming, are we prepared? How ready are earthquake-prone areas for a major event? How prevalent is earthquake insurance?
  • The Future of Flood Insurance: What have we learned from the major events of the last two years?
  • The National Flood Insurance Program: What is NFIP doing to change its approach and is there a role for private flood insurance?
  • Protecting our Cities: Transferring catastrophe risk from taxpayers to Wall Street. In an era of ever more expensive disasters, how can governments protect their budgets and citizens at the same time?

  • The exciting line-up of speakers for the Community Recovery and Resilience Leadership Forum includes:

    • Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II, U.S. House of Representatives, Missouri

    • Michael Consedine, CEO, National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC)

    • John Doak, Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner

    • John Huff, President and CEO, Association of Bermuda Insurers & Reinsurers (ABIR)

    • Ray Lehmann, Director, Finance, Insurance & Trade Policy, R Street Institute

    • Angela Nelson, Director, Division of Market Regulation, Missouri Department of Insurance

    • Daniel Stander, Global Managing Director, RMS

    • Brian Treece, Mayor, City of Columbia, Missouri

    • Nancy Watkins, Principal, Consulting Actuary, Milliman

    • Roy Wright, President and CEO, Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS)
