EECMA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit association dedicated to help educate its members about the many issues surrounding emerging risks, environmental, asbestos, and other long-term exposure litigation that continues to challenge (re)insurers and our policyholders.

Conferences

In order to stay abreast of these challenges, since 1985 we have annually organized an event for members to gather and share their considerable knowledge and concerns in a productive, fun, and cost-effective way.  Every Spring, EECMA organizes a 2-day conference on industry-specific cutting-edge topics presented by attorneys, consultants, and insurance professionals who are experts in their respective fields.

Traditionally, insurance claims professionals and underwriting representatives have attended the conference and our broker partners.  Membership is open to all of those in the insurance industry engaged in solving the challenges from emerging risks, environmental, and tort claims.  We welcome our legal, science, medical, and consulting partners as well.

Over the years, EECMA has typically attracted to our annual Orlando conferences some 180+ claims professionals, law firms, as well as environmental and scientific consultants from around the country who exchanged knowledge sharing about the considerable risks that companies insure and reinsure.  EECMA's 2021 virtual conference was attended by 430 industry peers.

EECMA annually attracts many dozens of claims professionals in-person (and hundreds more virtually) from (re)insurers and brokers across the industry, including: Admiral, AIG, Allianz, Allied World, American Safety, AON, Arch, Ascot, Assurant, AXA XL, AXIS, Beazley, Berkley, Brandywine, Chubb, Continental Heritage, Coterie, Crum & Forster, Gen Re, Great American, Hanover, Hartford, Ironshore, James River, Liberty Mutual, Lockton, Markel, Marsh, Munich Re, Nationwide, Navigators, Partner Re, Philadelphia, R&Q, Resolute, RiverStone, SCOR, SiriusPoint, Sompo, Starr, Swiss Re, Travelers, Westfield, Willis Towers Watson, and Zurich.

Networking

For a modest in-person registration fee, EECMA's educational conference provides an excellent opportunity for insurance industry peers 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 venue to meet others in the insurance, legal, and consultant professions who are grappling with the same challenging insurance risk issues. For three decades, EECMA has consistently provided the most amazingly interesting, informative, insightful, and fun conference in the insurance industry, as well as continuing to be a great financial value.
