Chapter Meetings and Events

Join the AICP South Central Chapter for a Webinar on the:

Smoke Signals: Understanding the Cannabis Industry and Insurance Market

When: December 6, 2018

Time: 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm (CST)

In recent years, cannabis has outgrown the status of "hot topic" or mere curiosity. According to industry insiders, cannabis has become an irreversible and influential part of American commerce and consumption. Of course, the consequences and risks of the cannabis industry are not isolated to businesses operating in the cannabis supply chain. Regardless of the intent to cover or exclude cannabis-related losses, insurance service providers and regulators should be aware of how cannabis products and activities impact programs and policyholders in both legalized and non-legalized jurisdictions. This webinar will provide an overview of the cannabis economy, the current legal climate, and relevant risks and considerations for the property and casualty insurance market.

Phillip Skaggs, Assistant Counsel, American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS)
Phillip Skaggs is Assistant Counsel at the American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS), where he aids in the research and development of standardized property and casualty insurance products and advises the company on various legal and compliance matters. Phil also leads AAIS’ cannabis insurance initiative, which is tasked with evaluating how insurance producers can best respond to the complex risks of the legalized cannabis industry and regulatory climate.
