Antitrust Statement

The Property & Liability Resource Bureau intends to prevent any violation of antitrust laws at all their meetings and conferences.

Presenters and attendees at the PLRB educational conferences must remember that their respective firms are competitors in the marketplace and that the McCarran-Ferguson Act and the laws of some states provide the insurance industry with only very limited immunity from federal and state antitrust scrutiny. Therefore, presenters and attendees must exercise care during all presentations and discussions, since even innocuous discussions of certain topics might later be misinterpreted as evidence of collusion.

At PLRB educational conferences, and all educational, social, and business development events connected with this meeting, there should be no discussion or agreement, formal or informal, expressed or implied, as to any matters which might give rise to an allegation of violation of antitrust laws. Subjects to avoid include:

  • rates;
  • underwriting policies;
  • marketing strategies; marketing responses to legislative, regulatory, or other developments;
  • prices or costs of any products or services offered for sale by insurers or purchased by insurers;
  • individual insurance company positions on coverage issues and other matters of insurance policy interpretation; agreements or understandings relating to claims practice, policies, or positions;
  • standards by which the performance of any insurer could or should be judged; codes of ethics;
  • advantages or disadvantages of doing business in particular states;
  • refusal to deal with, or boycott of, potential insureds or suppliers of products or services; use of particular suppliers of products or services; and
  • costs or profits of any aspect of any of the above.

Entertainment Policy

The purpose of a PLRB educational conference is education. The strength, reputation, and national support of the PLRB Conferences are the result of its commitment to hardworking, intense professional development.

The official PLRB Conference program also provides helpful forums for networking among insurer claims professionals and claims service providers. Any additional activity sponsored by a claims service provider in conjunction with a PLRB Conference that undermines or conflicts with the primary educational purpose and reputation of the PLRB Conference is prohibited.

As example, entertainment during conference and expo hours is a conflict and prohibited. Also, after hours entertaining of fifteen or more conference attendees by any one person, organization, or group that extends past 11:00 p.m. on an evening before morning sessions undermines the educational experience and is prohibited. "Adult themed" entertainment undermines the reputation of the event and is prohibited.

Failure to comply with the policy can result in sanctions, including but not limited to:
- Loss of exhibiting privileges at PLRB events
- Loss of speaking privileges at PLRB events
- Loss of attendance privileges at PLRB events

The was my first PLRB conference and I look forward to attending others.

Great learning opportunity, good way to clarify how vendors can help or what they do.

I was able to meet several contractors and adjusters face to face that I've only talked to on the phone in the past. Everything is well organized and I appreciate that.

The variety of presentations compared to the amount of time allotted for the conference. It was nice getting to choose courses and not feeling like I had to settle for one which didn't apply. All were valuable.

Material appropriate for what we do. Variety of subject matter and choices.

The seminars very done very well and was pleased with overall experience.

PLRB greatly appreciates the following claims service providers for their outstanding support for the 2018 Regional Adjusters Conferences.
