For those of you I had the pleasure of seeing at last week’s very successful Gamma Iota Sigma Conference, this is the official announcement of our student research contest which I spoke to several of you about. For those I didn’t see last week, I would like to invite your students to be a part of our fifth annual AAMGA Student Research Contest. With this solicitation, the AAMGA seeks research papers on property and casualty industry-related topics focused on the issues and dilemmas faced by organizations and individuals in the Wholesale or Excess and Surplus Lines industry. Specific details can be found in the attached flyer.
Two winning papers will be selected from the submissions and the authors will be awarded $2000 and invited to attend (with their professors), at our expense, the AAMGA Annual Meeting at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC, May 17-20, 2015. Here, they will be recognized for their achievement, and this event, attended by over 1000 influential decision-makers, is an invaluable networking experience.
In addition, the winners’ research papers will be released to trade publications, including the Wholesale Insurance News (WIN) Magazine dedicated specifically to the Excess and Surplus Lines Industry.
I sincerely hope you will encourage your students to be a part of this opportunity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
