Registration for the IRUA’s 2019 Annual Members Meeting & Conference is now open!  The conference will be held at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale Harbor Beach Resort, 3030 Holiday Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL on April 2-3, 2019.

The Conference Program Committee has  been busy working on putting together a high-caliber and cutting-edge agenda as well as other activities.

This year, the format has changed a bit to allow for the Golf Tournament to be held on Tuesday, April 2 at noon.  Tuesday evening will be our Opening Night Cocktail Reception immediately followed by Dinner (with Golf Prizes and Awards).

In addition to our new format and workshop sessions, we are happy to announce a very special Keynote Dinner Speaker.  Come share  An Evening with P. J. O’Rourke“. This well-know satirist has written nineteen books on subjects as diverse as politics, cars, etiquette and economic. A copy of this latest book  P.J. O’Rourke is also a regular panelist on NRP’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me and a copy of his latest book will be given to all attendees.

On April 3rd, the program will open at 8:15 am with the Annual Meeting and will run the full day  After the day’s sessions have concluded, we will adjourn for a wrap-up Reception and Dinner in a casual setting.  We are, after all, at the beach!

The Agenda includes a CEO Panel and a Reinsurance Buyers Panel which you can’t afford to miss. And,  for the first time, we will have line of business breakout sessions so that we can cover as many areas as possible,  Breakout sessions will address Casualty topics, Property topics and, yes, Claims and you will have the opportunity to select which sessions you would like to attend.  A Copy of the full program agenda can be downloaded by CLICKING HERE.  Conference Sponsorship Opportunities will also be available so check back to be sure you secure your sponsorship early!
