The Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) is holding its Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Executive Forum at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans May 12th and 13th. The Forum is an industry favorite and leaders from a variety of workers’ comp self-insured group funds, plus other stakeholders, are expected to be in attendance at this year’s event. SIIA bills the conference as a strong educational program focusing on such topics as excess insurance and risk management strategies. Additionally, “tremendous” networking opportunities are specifically designed to help strengthen business relationships within the self-insured/alternative risk transfer industry. Louisiana Comp Blog spoke with two SIIA workers’ comp leaders to get their take on the upcoming event and what participants stand to gain.
