Washington, D.C.,
September 16, 2008—The Competitive Enterprise Institute, a think tank often
skeptical of government action, is joining with the South Carolina Department
of Insurance to host a major
conference on catastrophic risk.

Conference panels and workshops will take place at the
Westin Hilton Head Resort and Spa on
the 18th and 19th of September, 2008.  Attendance at the conference is free for
members of the press who may register on site. 

Scott Richardson, the Director
of South Carolina’s Department of Insurance, will host the conference along
with Eli Lehrer, the team leader of
CEI’s insurance project.

In addition to
Richardson and Lehrer, speakers include Florida Department of Insurance
Regulation Commissioner Kevin McCarty, Federal Alliance for Safe Homes
President and CEO Leslie Chapman-Henderson and National Wildlife Federation
Water Resources Specialist David Conrad.

“This is a different kind of conference,” says Lehrer.
“We’ve brought together the top experts from the academic, legislative, and
corporate worlds. We’re hoping to
actually move towards solving some
of the thorniest problems in insurance.”

Additional information about the conference is on its
website outofthestorm08.com.
