On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, The D&O Diary was at the annual PLUS D&O Symposium at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square in New York. It was another successful conference — and indeed given the state of the D&O marketplace, there was certainly a lot to talk about this year.
I was honored to serve as a moderator of a one of the panels on the first day of the conference. The session was well-attended and the audience was attentive and fully engaged. It is always such a pleasure to be a part of this conference, which is always so well-organized. It is also great to be able to address such a significant segment of the D&O insurance industry. We had an excellent group of panelists to address our sessionn topic, which was “Time for Another Round of Securities Litigation Reform?”
One of the great things about this conference is seeing old friends, but an even better part about this conference is the opportunity to make new friends as well. I was particularly pleased to meet quite a number of people who told me that they read The D&O Diary. I was particularly gratified that some of the blog’s most enthusiastic readers are younger and newer members of the D&O insurance profession. Here are a few pictures of some of the people I was fortunate to meet at the Symposium.
My congratulations to the PLUS Staff for another excellent Symposium.
For anyone thinking they might want to attend this event next year, you need to know that the event is moving to a different date in 2021. The event will take place at the same location, but on March 9th and 10th, 2021. You will want to make a note of the date change. Hope to see everyone again next year.
