Health Law attorney David Aafedt has been invited to speak at the 2018 PIAA Board Governance Roundtable in Scottsdale, AZ on March 15, 2018. David is a seasoned expert on board governance in complex regulatory environments, and his session, “Roles and Responsibilities of Board Members in a Highly Complex Industry,” will provide critical insights into the roles of board members of insurers in the MPL market.
The medical professional liability (MPL) insurance industry is highly complex and highly regulated. From federal and state lawmakers to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), numerous regulatory and policymaking bodies can have an impact on the operations of an MPL insurer. David Aafedt will help you gain an understanding of the fiduciary responsibilities of MPL insurer board members, in light of the fragmented state by state oversight of the insurance industry, and identify the NAIC’s best practices for corporate governance. He will also discuss the parameters and application of duty of care, duty of loyalty, and the business judgement rule. In addition, he will touch on critical topics for board members in today’s environment, such as cyber security. You will leave David’s session with a clear understanding of how your decision-making can contribute to both formulating and forming the content and context of strategic decisions in a highly-regulated environment, and mitigating risk for your organization and its constituents.
