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”.
Business Insurance is accepting nominations of top risk managers for the magazine's annual Risk Manager of the YearÆ award and Risk Management Honor RollÆ.
Anyone involved in risk management for a corporation, financial institution, nonprofit organization or government entity is eligible to be nominated. A candidate need not practice risk management full time but must be a full-time employee of the organization for which he or she manages risk.
This year, a simplified, two-part process for nominating candidates has been implemented.
Part I requires a summary, not more than 600 words in length, of a candidate's most recent accomplishments and factors that make him or her worthy of the award.
An independent panel of former award winners and risk management professionals will screen the Part I nominations. The deadline for Part I nominations is Dec. 15, 2006.
If selected, the more detailed Part II nomination form will be required. Part II nominations will be reviewed and scored by a panel of independent judges, including executives from leading insurance companies, brokerage firms, risk management consultants, risk management educators as well as winners of the awards.
The top-scoring candidate will be declared the Risk Manager of the Year.
The winners will be announced and profiled in the April 30, 2007, issue of Business Insurance, and the 2007 Risk Manager of the Year will be the 30th person so honored.

All Part I nominations must be received no later than Dec. 15.
