PMA's Frank Altiere to Present at 2014 URMIA Annual Conference


Frank X. Altiere, III, President of PMA Management Corp., a leading workers' compensation Third-Party Administrator, will present the results of a joint PMA-URMIA (University Risk Management and Insurance Association) survey of higher education risk managers at the 45th Annual URMIA Conference on September 23 at 3:45 p.m.

Altiere, along with Ben Evans, Executive Director of Risk Management and Insurance at the University of Pennsylvania, will present "Workers' Compensation Benchmarking Survey Results, Facts, and Solutions."

"We are pleased to partner with URMIA on this important survey and provide insight on workers' compensation challenges for the higher education industry," said Altiere, a RIMS fellow who holds CPCU, ARM, AU, IIA, and AIS designations. PMA Companies is a higher education risk management expert, with a long history of serving the needs of colleges and universities with dedicated resources and specialized solutions.

PMA Companies partnered with URMIA this summer to conduct a survey of higher education risk managers. The survey's goal was to determine the workers' compensation issues faced by risk managers in higher education, and provide information on solutions to these issues. The survey was conducted in conjunction with market research expert James P. Murphy.

The 2014 URMIA Annual Conference, Unbridled Champions of Risk, takes place from September 20-24 in Louisville, Kentucky. The conference will focus on ways higher education risk managers can become champions of risk management on their campuses and bring sound risk management strategies to all aspects of their institutions' work.
