The Professional Insurance and Marketing Association Summer Conference is coming up in a few weeks – July 27 through 30 to be exact – and I’ll be there. This year’s event will be at the sunny Silverado in Napa, CA.

The conference theme is Product Strategies in a Maturing Industry. The educational forum will focus on products and related industry developments. Throw in some excellent business development/networking opportunities with leaders in the association insurance marketing industry, and you’ve got the makings for a great conference.

I’ll be meeting with fellow MarkeTTech Symposium co-chairs, putting the finishing touches on the October conference in Chicago. It will also be a good chance to meet with at least three new clients relative to projects in development. Looking forward to chatting with various folks about our new group major med site, about a new MIB (Medical Information Bureau) integration, expanded online agent licensing systems functions, and other hot new stuff from IdeaStar.

Give me a call at 216-674-1600 ext. 116 if you would like to discuss Web-enabling insurance processes at the conference.

Oh yeah… I’m also looking forward to some rest and relaxation with my wife sans kids, and visiting a few of the local wineries. I promise to capture a few meaningful pictures. I can’t promise Laura Bush again, but I’m sure something interesting will surface. :-)
