BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

HOUSTON-There was plenty of water at the Houston Marine Insurance Seminar earlier this month.

Near-constant rain kept more than 1,100 registrants indoors at the Westin Galleria in Houston for most of the Sept. 21-23 event.

The annual seminar is sponsored by Marine Insurance Seminars Inc., a non-profit organization that donates proceeds from the event to schools for scholarships and programs that encourage the study of marine insurance and admiralty law.

The rainy weather kept attendees in their seats for speakers who provided overviews of the London, Bermuda and U.S. marine insurance markets; a look at the state of the oil and gas industry; an update on operational changes at the Port of Houston; and other topics.

Next year's seminar is scheduled for the same location and will be held Sept. 20-22. More information is available from Charles Flournoy at John L. Wortham & Son L.L.P., P.O. Box 1388, Houston, Texas 77251-1388; 713-526-3366.
