The Derek Hughes/NAPSLO Educational Foundation Lecture Series has been renamed the E.G. Lassiter Lecture Series, presented by the Derek Hughes/NAPSLO Educational Foundation, Joseph Timmons, Foundation President, announced at the recent 2011 NAPSLO Annual Convention in San Diego.
Mr. Timmons said the change was made to recognize Mr. Lassiter's efforts to promote the lecture series presented at the annual convention. Mr. Lassiter, Chairman and CEO of RSUI Group, Inc., is retiring in 2012.
The Foundation Lecture Series was established in 1998 to bring prominent business or political individuals to the annual convention to speak on relevant topics of the day. Michael Lewis, author of The Blind Side, The Big Short, Liar's Poker and Boomerang, was the 2011 lecture series speaker, and his presentation was attended by a large number of members.
