The Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) will host their annual Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Executive Forum at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans from May 12-14, 2015. SIIA has indicated that it expects a diverse group of self-insurance professionals at the conference next Spring, including: group self-insurance fund executives, general workers’ compensation self-insurers, third party administrators, excess carriers and reinsurers, attorneys, accountants and actuaries and risk management consultants, among others. The goal of the conference is primarily strategic development.

In a prepared statement, SIIA explained that, “In addition to a strong educational program focusing on such topics as excess insurance and risk management strategies, this event will offer tremendous networking opportunities that are specifically designed to help you strengthen business relationships within the self-insured/ alternative risk transfer industry.”

Program highlights for this year’s forum include:

  • The impact of the Affordable Care Act on Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Programs
  • Utilizing Data Analytics Strategies to Control Workers’ Compensation Costs
  • Workers’ Compensation Excess Carrier Panel Discussion
  • Risk Management Program in the Age of Legal Marijuana Use
  • Behavioral Medicine and Coaching Interventions in Chronic Pain
  • SIGs vs. Group Captives – Competition or Complimentary ART Structures

In addition to the full informative agenda, the New Orleans location is a bonus for both Louisiana businesses and out of state entities.

The New Orleans hospitality and unique atmosphere is an all-time favorite for our members.”
