General Information

NAMIC is following coronavirus updates to address the safety and well-being of its event attendees. This includes actively monitoring the most authoritative and responsible sources, such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization, and other reputable sources. NAMIC is committed to continuing awareness and communication of current information from reliable sources in addressing developments related to events and travel related to the virus.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended cancelling all events consisting of 50 or more people for eight weeks, so we will not be hosting any NAMIC event scheduled March through May.

The Leadership Development Workshop is a highly interactive and engaging one-and-a-half day immersive experience for insurance professionals who are looking to develop their team leadership and management skills.

Both new and experienced leaders have options to choose from with two featured workshop tracks. Check out the Workshop Topics & Speakers page for more information on each track and the target audience.

As an exciting new addition this year, the workshop will kick off with a panel session of CEOs, who will share their insights on leadership with attendees.

I was recently promoted to a leadership position and this conference gave me the confidence and some great tools to reinforce that I can absolutely handle this new responsibility.
