WIN Magazine - Summer 2016 - (Page 14)

FEATURE AAMGA'S 2016 WINNING WHITE PAPERS 2016 MARKS THE 7th year that the AAMGA has worked with College and University Risk Management and Insurance Programs across the country. Part of that effort is to allow students to participate in the annual White Paper Research Contest. Eighty-one risk management and insurance majors from 9 colleges and universities across the United States participated this year-over double those participating in 2015. Students were invited to research and write on one of a variety of topics in the following categories: * Emerging Risks & How Wholesalers can Best Address Them * Industry Concerns & the Impact on the Wholesaler * Technology and the Wholesaler All student and school names were removed from the entries before being submitted to our 15 esteemed industry judges for formal evaluation. The scores in each category were incredibly close, and the quality and quantity of submissions this year was unprecedented. A winning paper was selected from each category. Each of the three (3) student winners was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the AAMGA Education Foundation and were invited, along with their faculty advisor, to an all-expense paid trip to attend the AAMGA Annual Meeting, May 22-25, 2016, at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. Their papers are also published here in this issue of Wholesale Insurance News magazine. The following abstracts on pages 16, 20 and 26 represent the best of the submitted 2016 White Papers. The entries have been edited, and citations have been removed due to space considerations. Full versions of the White Papers can be viewed on the AAMGA University's webpage: education/whitepapers. The AAMGA and the AAMGA Education Foundation extend congratulations to the following winners of the 2016 AAMGA Student White Paper Research Contest: * IoT Insurance, Opportunities, Threats By Molly Belmont of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA * Hydraulic Fracking: The MGA's Guide By Parker Roberson of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC * The Infringement of Standard Markets on the Excess & Surplus Market By Hannah Lanier of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC 14 | v i e w t h i s i s s u e a t |
