PLRB Insurance Career Development Program

College & University Insurance & Risk Management Students Attend Claims Conference as Guests


A group of college and university students who are majoring in insurance and risk management will have the opportunity to "get their feet wet" when they are introduced to the diverse and intellectually challenging world of claims.  They will be introduced to the claims profession as guests at the PLRB 2015 Claims Conference. 


The 2015 PLRB Claims Conference will again host the Insurance Career Development Program.  Since 2013, the PLRB, along with several member companies have partnered to provide college and university students, who are interested in careers in the claims and insurance industry, the opportunity to participate in the Claims Conference. 


Students are sponsored by a member insurance company so that they can "get their feet wet" by attending three days of educational sessions.  They also have the opportunity to network with insurance claims service providers at the Insurance Services Expo. 


The 2015 Claims Conference will welcome students from California State University, Illinois State University, and the University of Georgia.


The Property & Liability Resource Bureau is a not-for-profit association of property and casualty insurance companies.  It is located in Downers Grove, Illinois.
