What to Expect:

Join IBHS experts for a special Disaster Dynamics Academy (DDA) that will dive deep into the most common residential roof covering in America: asphalt shingles.  This two-day event will include hands-on educational opportunities that will focus on the wind performance of asphalt shingles.  Attendees will learn how these shingles are tested, explore real-world performance studies, and develop an understanding of asphalt shingle vulnerabilities during high-wind events. 

More than half the event will be spent in the laboratory working with shingles and testing products alongside IBHS researchers and roofing experts! 

This unique opportunity focuses on the intersection of wind science, meteorology, building science, and insurance operations—and is part of IBHS’s broader efforts to translate our research into value learnings for our members.

Thoughts from Past Attendees

“This information was very helpful and is of value to my role in the claims organization. Info regarding the inaccuracy of observer data is a key callout as it is often foundational in deploying claim associates. I would recommend [DDA] to all Directors in our Underwriting, Product and Claim organizations.”

“I am responsible for my company’s disaster response, so the information about your deployment and tracking was very helpful.”
