Members can now register on-line for the 2010 NAPSLO Mid-Year Leadership Forum, scheduled for March 3-6 at the Fairmont Scottsdale (Ariz.) Resort.
The format of the Mid-Year meeting was overhauled this year in response to members’ requests, with the goal of focusing the meeting on the leadership challenges of our industry and our association.
The meeting format was changed to have the Opening Reception on Wednesday, rather than on Thursday as in the past. In addition, programs are scheduled for early in the day on Thursday and Friday to allow members the rest of the day to meet with others and to take part in activities. Thursday and Friday nights are open for dinners and private parties.
Thursday morning’s program will feature a Town Hall meeting with the NAPSLO Board of Directors following a buffet breakfast. Friday’s program will also follow a buffet breakfast and will feature leaders of several of the top surplus lines insurance carriers in our industry. They will share their vision of leadership and the challenges they face, as well as the accountability they feel in order to achieve superior results in these chaotic times.
Both days’ programs are scheduled to finish before 10:00 a.m. to allow members more time to network and plan other activities. In addition to the programs, several optional activities are planned, including a Hummer Tour, a Spouse Breakfast program on "Caring for the Caregiver," and Spa Treatments.
In addition, the annual Derek Hughes/NAPSLO Educational Foundation Golf Invitational is scheduled for Friday, March 5th and members can register for the tournament on-line or download golf registration materials.
Mid-Year registration fees are $795 for delegates and $425 for spouses until January 25. Members can reserve a hotel room at the Fairmont Scottsdale at the end of the registration process.
