NAPSLO Symposium, Chicago

Thanks to those of you who attended our guest speaker meeting yesterday!

For those of you who were not able to attend, we briefly discussed the upcoming NAPSLO (National Association of Professional Surplus Lines Organizations) Symposium in Chicago from March 27-28 (Friday and Saturday). Several of our members attended the conference last year, and it was very informative, as well as being lots of fun! This is also a terrific networking opportunity, as there is a career fair on Friday afternoon. To get an idea of how the symposium works, I’ve attached the 2013 schedule.

For any Gamma members wishing to attend the conference, travel and lodging expenses will be fully reimbursed by our chapter.

For everyone interested in attending this conference, please fill out the attached registration form and turn it in to Dr. Seward, Dr. Garven, or the Finance department by February 20th. I will then collect them and make sure they are submitted on time.

After I have collected registration forms, I will send out detailed instructions regarding booking flights and hotels.

Please feel free to email me with any questions!

Thank you,
