2011 ASSA Annual Meeting Call for PapersARIA has recently joined the ASSA and will have the opportunity to put on one session at the ASSA Meetings in Denver, Colorado January 7-9, 2011. We are soliciting papers for the ARIA session. Papers can be on any topic in insurance economics or finance. Since we only have one session at the meeting, the section process will be competitive. Ideally, we would like to showcase ARIA and the work our members do so we can attract new members to our annual meeting. Paper or proposal submissions will be accepted until June 1st. Completed papers will be given preference and only one submission per author will be considered. Please send your submission to Martin Grace at email@example.com. If you are going to the ASSA meetings and would like to be a discussant, please let Martin Grace know too.

Free instructor guides contain hundreds of individual and collaborative exercises, cases, and other tools to increase learning and transfer. This course is applicable to risk management and insurance degree curricula or in other business school programs as a way of introducing and applying ERM strategically. ERM 57 could be used in a classroom or in distance learning in both synchronous and asynchronous environments. The course was developed by ERM practitioners and academics.

ARIA Website - We’re Not Number One With March Madness consuming much of the sports world’s attention and the constant chant of “We’re number one,” the Executive Office wants to assure the membership that ARIA will not make such a bold claim about its website. According to analysts at Trafficestimate.com, ARIA.org’s worldwide ranking is 1,567,723 with 203 external websites linking to it. With a little more effort on everyone’s part, we are hoping to move up the ARIA website to the 1.5 millionth most visited website by next year.
