DALLAS—International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), will present several webinars covering various management and executive liability topics beginning May 18, 2010. The webinar agendas are designed for risk managers, human resource professionals, insurance agents and brokers, underwriters, and consultants.

The management liability insurance webinars include the following topics:

  • Avoiding the 10 Most Common Causes of Employment Practices Liability Claims
  • Overcoming Objections to Buying Employment Practices Liability Insurance
  • Private Company D&O Insurance: Why It’s Essential and How To Structure It
  • A Baker’s Dozen D&O Coverage and Practice Tips

Each of these 60-minute webinars will be presented by a nationally known insurance brokerage, underwriting, or legal expert who has spent years working in this specialized field. They will focus on giving you practical strategies and tactics you can use to make certain your organization is (or your clients are) properly managing and insuring executive liability risks. These webinars will give risk managers and insurance agents helpful tactics for demonstrating the need for employment practices liability (EPL) insurance to their executive teams or clients. Agents will also enhance their ability to show owners of privately held businesses why they should consider purchasing directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance.

Participating in three of these webinars will fulfill the annual reaccreditation requirement for the MLIS certification.

IRMI president Jack P. Gibson said, “Since these types of insurance are complex and viewed as costly, many agents are reluctant to recommend them to their clients and many companies elect not to purchase the insurance when presented with a quote. Our aim with these webinars is to dispel some of the myths people rely on in making poor decisions, to give agents knowledge to confidently recommend and place EPL and private company D&O insurance, and to help insurance buyers make a meaningful assessment of whether their organizations need it. Of course, we will also give valuable tips for assuring the policies purchased adequately address the policyholder’s exposures.”

This high-quality educational programming will be presented using the best, state-of-the-art webinar technology available. Each IRMI webinar will begin at 1:00 p.m. Eastern, last approximately 1 hour, and include opportunities for participants to ask questions of the presenters. Each webinar costs $59 per Internet connection, and they will be archived for 6 months following the live broadcast for viewing by registrants who are unable to view the live event or who wish to view it again. Registrants may also invite colleagues to participate in a group setting at no extra charge. To learn more, please visit
