Free Luncheon Being Put on by CLM For Claims Professionals - Same Day and Place as Tort Talk Expo

I have learned, as noted in greater detail below, that, on Thursday, May 3, 2012 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, i.e., the same date and place for my Tort Talk Expo 2012 CLE Seminar, the Claims & Litigation Management Alliance (CLM) will be separately holding a free luncheon for claims professionals only at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The luncheon will be from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. The Tort Talk Expo 2012 starts at 12:30 pm just down the hall from the luncheon. The CLM event is sponsored by Digital Legal.

To the extent you may be interested in attending these events, please be reminded that the Tort Talk Expo 2012 CLE seminar is set to take place on May 3, 2012 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm followed by a Cocktail Reception for all of the attendees.

Here is a link to the Agenda and Registration Form for the Tort Talk Expo 2012 event: http://www.torttalk.com/2012/03/tort-talk-expo-2012-two-months-away.html.

The Tort Talk Expo 2012 will be a half day event that will cover a Civil Litigation Update, an Auto Law Update, a presentation on Diagnostic Studies (x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, etc.) by expert radiologist Dr. Michael Brooks, along with a judicial panel that will include U.S. Third District Court of Appeals Judge Thomas I. Vanaskie, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin, Pennsylvania Superior Court President Judge Correale Stevens, and Luzerne County President Judge Thomas Burke, Jr.—quite a list of appellate judges who routinely decide important civil litigation issues. The Tort Talk Expo 2012 CLE Seminar offers 2 substantive and 1 ethics CLE credits.

The separate Claims & Litigation Management Alliance luncheon, which I have been advised is only open to claims professionals, will primarily be designed to provide information regarding the benefits of membership in the CLM. Membership in the CLM is free for claims professionals. I note that I am a member of the CLM as paid memberships for attorneys are also available with that group.

The Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM) is an inclusive, collaborative organization that promotes and furthers the highest standards of claims and litigation management and brings together the thought leaders in both industries. CLM’s Members and Fellows include risk and litigation managers, insurance and claims professionals, corporate counsel, outside counsel and third party vendors. The CLM sponsors educational programs, provides resources and fosters communication among all in the industry. For more information, you can visit the CLM’s website at http://www.theclm.org/Default.aspx.

The CLM’s separate, free luncheon will be held in the Racetrack Clubhouse at the Mohegan Sun Casino just down the hall from the Seasons Ballroom where the Tort Talk Expo 2012 will be held. Here is a link with driving instructions to the casino: http://poconodowns.com/getting-here/.

Any claims professional who plans to attend the free CLM luncheon is invited to also consider attending the Tort Talk Expo 2012 which will start with registration immediately after the CLM luncheon is over. Cost for claims professionals to attend the Tort Talk Expo 2012 is only $25.

Both events should be great networking opportunities as well as a chance to reconnect with your friends in the insurance and legal professions.
If you plan to attend the CLM’s luncheon please let me know by emailing me at dancummins@comcast.net so I can pass your name on to Matt Keris, Esquire of the Moosic, Pennsylvania office of Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin. Attorney Keris is helping to run that separate CLM event and needs to provide a head count for the luncheon.

Please also let me know if you plan to make a day of it and attend the Tort Talk Expo 2012 as well.
