NAPSLO, PLUS Working Together to Offer Educational Programs to Each Other's Members

The Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) and the NAPSLO are working together to offer unique opportunities for members of both organizations. PLUS is a nonprofit organization established to support and enrich the careers of people involved in the field of professional liability underwriting.

“PLUS and NAPSLO are two of the most highly respected associations in the insurance industry; both with unique missions and membership, and we have a common interest in providing education and information to our members. This new initiative is designed to enhance both organizations and the value we bring to our members. It once again demonstrates how our industry responds to challenges with the type of innovation that leads to a brighter, more successful future,” said PLUS President, David Bell, Chief Operating and Administrative Officer of Allied World Assurance Company, Ltd.

NAPSLO is known as the authoritative voice of the surplus lines industry. We are always looking for relationships with other segments of the insurance industry, particularly when it comes to providing educational information, promoting the professionalism of our members and sharing information about the vital role of the excess and surplus lines insurance industry,” said NAPSLO President, John F. Wood, III, President of Specialty Risk Associates. “Our partnership with PLUS will allow for new ways to accomplish our mission and provide value to our members.”

Through this partnership, NAPSLO member companies and their employees will gain access to the PLUS Curriculum, a 23-module collection of professional liability training modules designed for adult learners, and other educational opportunities at its conference and seminars. Concurrently, PLUS will gain the benefit of NAPSLO’s surplus lines expertise through shared presentations, regulatory information, and access to NAPSLO’s educational schools.

The 2009 PLUS Annual International Conference, being held November 11-13 in Chicago, will host a panel presentation featuring a number of experts in the excess and surplus lines industry.
