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”.

NAMIC launches climate impact Web site


INDIANAPOLIS—The National Assn. of Mutual Insurance Cos. has introduced a new Web site focusing on climate change and its impact on the property/casualty insurance industry.

The site,, was launched in response to the growing discussion about climate change and the insurance industry's role in the public policy debate over such topics as flood, natural disaster insurance, emergency preparedness and response, and reinsurance.

Indianapolis-based NAMIC said the Web site will not advocate specific positions on the causes of global climate change or the increasing frequency of natural disasters around the world. Instead the site will focus on how climate change affects the insurance industry and what insurers and reinsurers in the United States and Europe are doing in response.

NAMIC plans to add such features as podcasts, blogs, videocasts and other interactive features to the Web site as dictated by the needs of the site's users.

The association also will use the site to report on the status of the National Assn. of Insurance Commissioners' Climate Change and Global Warming Task Force and other regulatory and legislative efforts on the climate change issue.
