Dear Presidents of the National Chapters:
I address you hoping that you and your distinguished colleagues are
well and that your National Section’s activities are going fine.
I should like to make the following comments:
1. PROFESSOR’S EDUARDO STEINFELD PASSING AWAY
Unfortunately, we have to inform you that Prof. Eduardo Steinfeld
passed away in Buenos Aires. He was, with out a doubt, one of the most
renowned Iberian-American Insurance Law scholars, particularly on
Argentinean Insurance Law, in which he shined with his own light and
left many important academic contributions.
In effect, together with Profs. Isaac Harperin and Juan Carlos Felix
Morandi, Eduardo. Steinfeld was one of the Argentine Insurance Law
Association founders, and councilor of the Professional Insurer’s
Association. For many years he presided the Argentine AIDA Section,
after Professor Morandi’s passing away.
Once again, AIDA has lost one of its most important scholars and a
distinguished collaborator and promoter of Insurance Law. Prof.
Steinfeld was a gentleman characterized by good judgement and great
assistance to Insurance Law. AIDA’s Presidency recently sent an official
message of support and condolence to the Argentine Insurance Law
In the next AIDA Presidential Council meeting there will be a minute of
silence and the Argentine Section will say some words in his memory.
Moreover, the XXI issue of the Iberian-Latin American Insurance Law
Magazine CILA-AIDA will be edited in his name.
2. NEXT PRESIDENTIAL COUNCIL MEETING
As it was set forth in Rio de Janeiro, we wish to remind you that second
Presidential Council meeting will take place in Brussels on 4 th
December at the U.P.E.A. installations. For its importance, we also point
out that the Working Parties will also meet that day and there will be a
visit to the Catholic University of Lovain to undertake a cooperation
agreement on the study of Insurance Law.
3. AIDA –MAIL
Bearing in mind AIDA-MAIL institutional importance, and the need to
timely diffuse a great number of international Insurance and
Reinsurance information, once again we invite you to participate in this
electronic information tool by sending documents that you deem
pertinent (i.e. Congresses, seminars, forums, designation of new
directors, enactment of new laws, jurisprudence, etc.)
As you will understand, the project’s success fundamentally depends
on the National Section’s collaboration, which we thank beforehand.
Therefore, we request your assistance on this matter.
4. REALIZACION DE UN SEMINARIO SOBRE VALORACIÓN
DEL DAÑO PATRIMONIAL Y EXTRAPATRIMONIAL.

Insurer’s Federation (FASECOLDA) will be hosting a Seminar on Valuing
Patrimonial and Non-Patrimonial Damages in Bogota on October 8 and
