Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation conducted a “Subrogation: Demystifying the Recovery Process” workshop during the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) 2013 Annual Meeting, held November 21 in Nashville, Tenn.
The session, led by Robert W. Peterson, JD, professor of law at Santa Clara University, provided policymakers with an enhanced understanding of the key components of subrogation and its role in the insurance marketplace.
The Griffith Foundation has been partnering with NCOIL since 2008, when they created the NCOIL Institute for Insurance Policy. This collaborative educational effort allows The Griffith Foundation to share its knowledge resources with NCOIL members through seminars and workshops on key risk management and insurance issues.
- Legislators who attend multiple workshops can earn the Associate Insurance Policymaker (AIP) or Chartered Insurance Policymaker (CIP) certificate and are honored at a recognition ceremony at NCOIL’s Annual Meeting. At this year’s meeting, eight attendees received the AIP certificate, and seven attendees received the CIP certificate: Associate Insurance Policymaker certificate (AIP): Sen. Rosalynn Baker of Hawaii, Sen. Bill Brown of Oklahoma, Rep. Romy Cachola of Hawaii, Rep. Lindsey Holmes of Alaska, Sen. Deloris Kelley of Maryland, Sen. Gerald Long of Louisiana, Sen. Jason Rapert of Arkansas, and Sen. Dan Seum of Kentucky.
- Chartered Insurance Policymaker certificate (CIP): Rep. Greg Cromer of Louisiana, Rep. Donald Flanders of New Hampshire, Sen. Mike Hall of West Virginia, Sen. Jerry Klein of North Dakota, Rep. Matt Lehman of Indiana, Rep. Dan Morrish of Louisiana, and Sen. David O’Connell of North Dakota
“The workshop provided valuable information on how subrogation affects the property-casualty and health insurance marketplaces,” said Alabama state Representative and NCOIL president Greg Wren. “Workshops like this are very informative, and I will be able to use this resource in my legislative duties.”
