NEWSGROUPS LINE:	General forum for all insurance issues. (Moderated)




The scope of the proposed group should
cover basically all insurance related issues which could include,
but are not limited to the following:

 * underwriting
 * actuarial
 * claims
 * information technology in insurance
 * broking
 * reinsurance

It is hoped that the group would lean towards the discussion
of general day-to-day business and away from, for example,
protracted discussions on the finer details of a particular
actuarial equation.  Moderation would only cut in when the
subject no longer relates directly to insurance though.  As
well as being a forum to discuss specific issues, this group
will also act as an arena in which to simply make contact with
other insurance professionals.  The moderation for this group
will exist *solely* to filter out the totally off-topic posts,
and will not judge on insurance related content.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP: is a moderated newsgroup which passed its vote for
creation by 147:24 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 3 Jan 1996.
