In an effort to help answer questions, stimulate conversation, and share ideas, ILSA has reached out to industry professionals and regulators to participate in this free podcast series. The responses have been amazing. Volunteer interviewees choose their own topics for discussion; this allows them to talk about issues that truly impact them, and the industry in general. Seasoned ILSA Specialists will also be contributing discussions on topics centering on compliance issues they deal with on a daily bases, on behalf of clients. ILSA will continue reaching out to industry insiders to cover many more important industry topics over the next year.

The inaugural episode features Peter Thrane, of Stinson Leonard Street LLP, who shares his advice for dealing with state insurance regulators and what to expect from the investigative process.

In Episode 2, Dan Maher, Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer of the Excess Line Association of New York (ELANY), discusses fundamental strategies for brokers to avoid disciplinary actions and fines.

In Episode 3, Norma Essery and Tara Mitchell address a variety of “hot topics” at the Texas Surplus Lines Stamping Office, including common causes of late/incomplete filings, coverage and class codes and transaction types, diligent effort requirements, and the role of exempt commercial purchasers.

In Episode 4, Tameika Johnson and Mayra Feregrino, from the ILSA Tax Team, discuss what triggers the need for annual/biennial reports and corporate tax filings and strategies for assessing compliance status and bringing agencies into full compliance.

The podcasts are available immediately on YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, and Stitcher Radio, and in September on iHeartRadio, DoubleTwist and TuneIN. A mobile app will also be available in the near future.
