J. O’Rourke, humorist and writer, was an excellent opening night speaker. An all-day session on April 3rd featured CEO & Reinsurance Buyers Roundtables. Additionally, there were 4 breakouts in each of 3 workshop tracks – Property, Casualty & Claims. The event wrapped up with a great BBQ dinner.

This year, the format had changed to allow for the Golf Tournament to be held on Tuesday, April 2 at noon with the Opening Night Cocktail Reception and dinner held immediately following the Tournament.
