Fort Lauderdale Mariners Club Member & Lecturer
Keith Brais is a member of the Fort Lauderdale Mariners Club (“FLMC”). FLMC was formed in 1989 and is a non-profit, non-political organization among maritime industry professionals and attorneys to encourage high standards of business practice throughout the community and to provide a forum to improve the marine industry in South Florida.
The focal point of the Club’s activities is the marine seminar held prior to the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in October of each year. The first marine seminar, held in 1989, was attended by more than 150 people. Today, the seminar draws more than 500 participants from all walks of the marine community. The interesting slate of speakers, coupled with the opportunity for attendees to interact with each other in a vibrant setting, had made the marine seminar a truly international event.
In 2002 and 2006 the Club’s member honored Keith Brais by requesting that he lecture at the fall seminar. “To Deny Coverage or Not Deny Coverage” was the paper presented at the 2002 seminar, discussing various underwriting issues when deciding to accept coverage for marine losses.
