Sharing knowledge about risk...

Welcome to, the home page for the Emerging and Environmental Claims Managers Association.


The Emerging and Environmental Claims Managers Association (EECMA) is an informal association of major and minor, domestic and international, property and casualty insurers and reinsurers. The members of EECMA are focused on continued education about the many issues surrounding environmental, asbestos, and other long-term exposure litigation that continues to challenge us and our policyholders

In order to stay abreast of these challenges, for the past 20 years we have created a "place" for members to gather and share their knowledge and concerns in a productive and cost effective way. Every year, EECMA organizes a 2- to 3-day conference that comprises of industry-specific "cutting-edge" topics presented by attorneys, consultants, and insurance professionals in the US and internationally who are experts in their respective fields.

Traditionally, senior and mid-level management representatives of each company have attended the conference. Membership is free and open to all those engaged in solving the challenges from environmental and tort claims. For a minimal fee, the conference provides an excellent opportunity for our companies to gather together to discuss issues that are of high importance to each of us and to learn of emerging legal, technical, and regulatory developments that impact us all. EECMA also serves as a valuable networking place to meet others in the insurance and legal professions who are grappling with the same legal issues. Our conferences are always held in relaxed and beautiful settings.
