Airmic consulted its members on its future activities via a dial-in telephone discussion as part of the Airmic Live! Series.

The discussion was chaired by Lynda Lucas of Fujitsu, and the Airmic panel of chairman Paul Howard, chief executive John Hurrell and technical director Paul Hopkin outlined plans for the future and responded to questions from callers.

Hurrell talked about the Airmic strategic aim of supporting members with their career development plans, while Howard outlined projects that have been completed researching the benefits of ERM and the application of the concept of risk appetite. He said Airmic planned future research projects that would re-emphasise the body’s role as a thought leader in risk management.

Howard also discussed the benchmarking work that Airmic is undertaking into the structure and cost of insurance programmes and the training courses being provided free to members via Airmic Academy.

Feedback from the event was positive, with participants commenting that it was “helpful to be involved in the development of future plans from the association”.
