COVID-19 update for members
During the pandemic, Airmic remains open for business as the virtual association for risk and insurance professionals. Our aim throughout the past year has been to do all we can to help the situation by maintaining a stakeholder-centric approach for our members and partners.
Our key message is that we want to reintroduce physical events as soon as it is safe to do so. For now, the proposal is for events towards the beginning of the year to be digital, moving to physical events later in the year.
While restrictions remain in place, Airmic continues to offer its member services as an online offering, as well as providing additional technical and practical updates to support risk professionals navigating the COVID-19 crisis.
Below we provide more information on how to make the most of your membership during these times. Members can contact the Airmic secretariat on 020 7680 3088 or using the email addresses here.

Between 23 March 2020 and 3 August 2020 Airmic hosted a series of live broadcasts called Airmic LIVE with a focus on risk and insurance COVID-19 related topics.
Subsequent Airmic LIVE webinars have also approached other topics closely related to the pandemic and its effects from risk management and insurance market perspectives.
Following a short break, Airmic LIVE returned in November 2020 and continues, weekly, to examine critical and current issues of interest to the industry.
You will find a short synopsis of each webinar and a recording of all of the webinars below. View the past recordings here.

The key event for the year is the Airmic Conference in Brighton 4 to 6 October. This is planned to be a physical event, packed with networking events, exhibition space, HUBs, activities, speakers, sessions, and panels.
Conference 2021 will be all about networking and understanding. We want to provide an opportunity for our membership to share and enrich collective knowledge about how the market has transformed within the past year, and to learn what are the latest options available for risk and insurance professionals and their partner organisations.
The theme is “Driving Transformation – Shaping the future”. This is about overcoming adversity, meeting the challenges we face in mitigating risks and converting opportunities, with an underlying confidence that we can actively work together to shape our place in the “New World”.
Other major events:
A programme of Forum events will start with a Technology Forum 13 May.
The focus will be on how the pandemic has pushed organisations over the “technology tipping point” and transformed business forever. There will be a blend of keynotes and panels supported by insurance and risk industry and member case studies.
Airmic’s fastTrack workshops are run virtually as webinars. As part of a brand refresh, we have released a brochure and webpage featuring a new fastTrack programme for 2021 and 2022. The fastTrack programme for 2021-2022 can be viewed here.
