In an effort to meet the educational needs of financial regulators during these challenging times, the Katie School of Insurance is collaborating with The Institutes Griffith Insurance Education Foundation to deliver a series of 8 non-partisan, non-advocative webinar programs during the month of June. Because of significant overlap with the informational needs of legislators, we are pleased to provide complimentary access to legislators, staffers, and interns, as well.
Please note: This webinar series is being offered in place of the on-site, multi-day conference, which was to have taken place at the Katie School of Insurance in early June. That event has been cancelled because of the COVID-19 crisis.
- The programs are offered without charge to public policymakers.
- A program calendar appears below, containing information about each webinar.
- Pre-registration for each session is required.
The webinars will be moderated by Frank Paul Tomasello, JD, Senior Director at The Institutes Griffith Foundation, and Jim Jones, Executive Director at the Katie School of Insurance and Risk Management, Illinois State University. All sessions will begin at 1:30 pm Eastern time.
