The Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (AMII) has opened registration for its AGM set to take place on 14 March 2018 in Milton Keynes.

With a focus on the forthcoming implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the AGM will also cover other regulatory issues affecting business in 2018 and look at opportunities for growth, diversification and innovation within the industry.

Branko Bjelobaba, Director of Branko Ltd and AMII's compliance partner, will lead a keynote presentation highlighting key actions businesses should already have undertaken, along with those still needed, in order to be compliant with GDPR ahead of the implementation date on 25 May 2018.

Branko will also give a brief overview of other regulatory issues affecting business in 2018, including the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD); how to ensure compliance with the forthcoming changes to the FCA's Senior Managers and Certification Regime; and the FCA's consultation on plans to give more small businesses access to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

Presentations from key industry figures will offer views on the current market and highlight opportunities for business growth. Matthew Whitehouse, Head of Regional Sales at UNUM, will present ‘The power of solutions diversification – embracing complimentary products to ensure holistic advice’ while Matthew Ward, Senior Manager in Innovation and Retail at AXA PPP, will speak on ‘Innovation: bringing the outside in’.

Stuart Scullion, AMII Chairman, said: “As an industry we’re facing new challenges this year and I want businesses to be as prepared as possible for the changes that lie ahead such as GDPR.

“However, the industry is also presenting exciting opportunities for growth and diversification, and while it is important to focus on compliance, we shouldn’t forget to be ambitious. The theme of compliance and industry opportunities was a natural fit for this year’s AGM.

“I’m looking forward to what is set to be an informative and interesting day.” Held at the Doubletree Hilton, Stadium:MK, between 10.30am and 3pm, the day will see a mix of keynote presentations, debate and discussion on a range of topics, together with a Broker Rapid Quote demonstration from Steve Warden of Rapid Quote.
