Annual Interviews of Professional Liability Insurance Carriers
Each year, the AIA and the AIA Trust meet with leading professional liability insurance (PLI) carriers to learn about trends the carriers are seeing and learn how A/E firms can best position themselves to reduce risk. This meeting is sponsored jointly with the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) and National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). Invitations are sent to a large number of PLI carriers, asking them to participate in an extensive written survey and an in-person interview.
During the in-person interviews, carriers are asked to expand on their written answers and respond to questions from AIA, AIA Trust, ACEC, and NSPE executives. We are providing this information to help you evaluate risks related to professional practice and professional liability insurance procurement decisions.
Results of Professional Liability Insurance Survey of Carriers
A compilation of the PLI written survey responses is available for each year the survey has been conducted.
