Significant research and many presentations have been made regarding the science and methodology behind earthquakes and earthquake insurance. However, the time is right to move toward developing comprehensive public policy options to address this important issue. Working toward this end the Western States Seismic Policy Council (a consortia of state emergency managers and geoscientists) and the Council State Governments-WEST (a association serving western legislators) have joined efforts by sponsoring a Western U nited States Earthquake Insurance Summit. By bringing together experts in the field with policy-makers, action may result to address this issue. Although one single policy recommendation may not result from this conference, it is hope of the sponsors th at the issues will be clarified and a clear set of policy options will be arrayed. ============================== Western United States Earthquake Insurance Summit Program Schedule (Times, invited speakers and topics subject to change) Wednesday, June 24, 1998 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Welcome reception and Registration Thursday, June 25, 1998 7:00 a.m. Breakfast and Registration 8:00 a.m. Opening and Introduction to Summit Kent Briggs, Council of State Governments-WEST Lorayne Frank, Western States Seismic Policy Council 8:10 a.m. Keynote Address Howard Kunreuther, Wharton School of Business 9:00 a.m. Topic I: Current Practices Panel I: Insurance Industry Greg Butler, California Earthquake Authority Susan Bithell, Farmer's Insurance Group Dan Dunmoyer, Personal Insurance Federation of California David Durbin, SwissRe 10:15 a.m. Break 10:45 a.m. Panel II: Government Insurance Regulation Robert Klein, Georgia State University Richard Roth, Jr., California Department of Insurance Amy Bach, United Policyholders 11:30 a.m. Panel III: Public Policy and Legislation Elaine Alquist, California Assembly John Davies, Alaska House of Representatives Peter Knudson, Utah House of Representatives 12:15 p.m. Lunch 1:30 p.m. Topic I: Current Practices (continued) Panel IV: Sciences Thalia Anagnos, San Jose State University Tom Holzer, United States Geological Survey Mark Petersen, California Department of Mines and Geology David Schwartz, United States Geological Survey 2:30 p.m. Topic II: Estimating the Risk: Hazard Loss Estimation Karen Clark, Applied Insurance Research Mahoud Khater, EQE International Anne Kiremidjian, Stanford University Scott Lawson, Risk Management Solutions 3:30 p.m. Break 4:00 p.m. Topic III: Reinsurance and Risk Securitization Neil Doherty, Wharton School of Business Ross Davidson, USAA David Durbin, SwissRe Frank Nutter, Reinsurance Association of America 5:30 p.m. Evening Social Friday, June 26 7:00 a.m. Breakfast 8:00 a.m. Introduction and Summary 8:15 a.m. Topic IV: Mitigating the Risk Panel I: Building Codes and Standards Dennis Gage, Insurance Services Office John Henry, International Conference of Building Officials Eugene Zeller, City of Long Beach, Dept of Planning and Building 9:15 a.m. Break 9:45 a.m. Panel II: Community Planning and Disaster Resistant Communities Michael Armstrong, Federal Emergency Management Agency ReneTheta Domingo, City of Oakland, Dept of Emergency Management Walter Hays, United States Geological Survey Harvey Ryland, Institute for Business and Home Safety 11:00 a.m. Panel III: Engineering and Construction Ron Hamburger, EQE Engineering Janiele Maffei, Degenkolb Engineers Representative, National Association of Realtors 12:00 p.m. Lunch 1:15 p.m. Topic IV: Mitigating the Risk (continued) Panel IV: Utilizing Financial Markets Richard Belyea, Home Savings of America Al Elder, America's Community Bankers Steve Korducki, EW Blanch Al LeQuang, Freddie Mac 2:45 p.m. Break 3:15 p.m. Public Policy Analysis Panel Jim Ament, State Farm Insurance Jill Andrews, Southern California Earthquake Center Mary Comerio, University of California, Berkeley James Davis, California Division of Mines and Geology Richard McCarthy, California Seismic Safety Commission Richard Roth, Jr., California Department of Insurance 5:30 p.m. Summit Adjourns ============================== WESTERN UNITED STATES EARTHQUAKE INSURANCE SUMMIT REGISTRATION FORM Please print out this page and enclose it with a check or state voucher and mail to: Western States Seismic Policy Council + 121 Second Street + Fourth Floor + San Francisco + CA + 94105 Reservations are also taken by fax or e-mail + Telephone: 415/974-6435 + Fax: 415/974-1747 + E-mail: wsspc(--nospam--at)wsspc.org For more information, visit the WSSPC web site at http://www.wsspc.org Name: (Mr., Ms., Mrs., Dr.) _____________________________________________ Job Title: _____________________________________________________ Organization: _____________________________________________________ Address: _____________________________________________________ City, State, Zip: _____________________________________________________ Phone: ( )__________________ Fax: ( ) ____________________ E-Mail: ___________________________________________ Web Address: ___________________________________________ Professional Emphasis: _____________________________________________________ Spouse/Significant Other(s): (if attending) ____________________________________________ Dietary Restrictions?
