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”.

Risk Manager of the Year nominations deadline extended

Risk Manager of the Year nominations deadline extended

Business Insurance invites readers to nominate candidates for the annual Risk Manager of the Year® award and Risk Management Honor Roll® by the extended deadline of Dec. 9.

The award to recognize outstanding risk managers involves a two-part nominating process. Part 1 requires a nominating statement that summarizes the achievements or qualities that make the individual worthy of consideration for the award.

An independent panel of former honorees will screen the nominations.

Nominees advanced by the screening panel are then asked to prepare a more detailed nomination form in Part 2 of the process.

Those nominations will be judged and scored by a panel of independent judges representing the 2011 honorees; and executives from leading risk management providers, including brokers, insurers and consultants.

The risk manager with the highest score is selected as the Risk Manager of the Year® by a panel of independent judges. Up to five other individuals can be named to the Risk Management Honor Roll.

Anyone involved in managing the risk of their organization, anywhere in the world, is eligible for consideration for the award. For complete information about the process, please download a copy of the Part 1 nomination form at
