Insurance Symposium

Since 1995, the Ole Miss RMI program has hosted the annual Ole Miss Insurance Symposium that serves the insurance industry and allows the students to learn more about the industry while also providing them with the opportunity to interact with risk management and insurance professionals. The Symposium is regularly attended by nearly 200 participants, and has recently featured nationally-recognized guest speakers such as William R. Berkley (W.R. Berkley Corp), Jay Fishman (Travelers), J. Patrick Gallagher (Arthur J. Gallagher), Michael Hughes (Safeco Corp.), Shaun Kelly (Ironshore), Mike LaRocco (State Auto), Michael S. McGavick (XL Group), Glenn M. Renwick (Progressive), Glenn Spencer (Lockton), and Hank Watkins (Lloyd's North America).

The 2019 Ole Miss Insurance Symposium will take place March 20-21 at the Inn at Ole Miss. For information on how to register for the Ole Miss Insurance Symposium, please contact Ms. Kathy Shoalmire at kshoalmire@bus.olemiss.edu.
