Airmic is going places fast. Like many other organisations, our shift over the last several years to being a virtual, as well as physical, association resulted in a dramatic expansion of digital services such as webinars, roundtables, and podcasts. As a result, our membership has continued to grow rapidly even during the pandemic, and we are now pivoting back to a programme of in person workshops and events as well as digital.
Airmic has a presence in the Island of Ireland, through a small but vibrant community of engaged and active members in Northern Ireland and the Republic, eager to share their perspectives on everything from emerging risks, to difficulties in the on-going hard insurance market, to captive formation and management. The increasingly digital future gives us an opportunity to work with these communities more than ever before, and in October 2022 we will seize the moment to gather in person with our first ever Island of Ireland Forum. Supported by Brokers Ireland and Insurance Ireland, over the course of this one day event, join us as we continue to strive for transformation in risk management and insurance.

Keynote - Seán Fleming TD, Minister of State with responsibility for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance
A well-functioning insurance industry is vital for any healthy and vibrant economy. What are the priorities for Ireland as an international center for insurance and where do we go from here? Minister Fleming will speak about the Government’s ambitious plan to change the Irish insurance environment through the Action Plan for Insurance Reform, the successes achieved to date, and the future of the Irish insurance market. This will include Ireland’s strength as a global insurtech/fintech hub, the size and scope of its captive insurance market, and his support for diversity initiatives such as the Women in Finance charter, which he launched in April 2022.
