NAMIC Annual Convention
September 19-22, 2021 | Virtual
Because the safety and well-being of event attendees is of utmost importance, NAMIC is actively monitoring COVID-19 information from the most authoritative and responsible sources. We will make event-related decisions based on these organizations’ information and recommendations. All events with in-person offerings will also have virtual offerings and flexible cancellation policies to allow for adjustments in travel plans due to COVID-19.
While it is unclear how long company travel restrictions will last, social distancing will be practiced, and other effects on event attendance will continue in response to this outbreak, our hope is to be able to provide you with the opportunity to gather together again in person as soon as it is safe to do so. We will provide regular updates on event status and provide ample notice to adjust travel plans.
Please refer to event registration confirmations and event registration pages for our cancellation policy if you decide to cancel attendance at any NAMIC event for personal reasons. If you are not able to join us, you will be able to access all presentations virtually. We appreciate your understanding.

Yes, this event does have a virtual event option. Just select the “Virtual” option when registering.
NAMIC hybrid events offer both in-person and virtual registration options for property/casualty insurance industry professionals to gather, share insights, and learn about the latest issues impacting our industry. Attendees will have the choice to attend the same great NAMIC events in the setting of their choosing.
All sessions will be broadcast live during the scheduled event time and will include a live Q&A session with presenters. We strongly suggest attendees participate during the live broadcast; however, session recordings will be accessible on demand within 48 hours of the live broadcast.
Yes, you will be able to access the recordings through the end of 2021.
Business casual attire is appropriate for all educational sessions, receptions, and meal functions.
If you are attending the Farm Mutual Forum for PFMM maintenance, you are welcome to attend any sessions you choose.
No, you do not. The only sessions that are required are the PFMM courses for those who are working towards their PFMM designation. There does not have to be consistency in the types of sessions you choose to attend. We encourage you to attend courses that you will find most beneficial.
In an effort to provide our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and attendees the best level of service, we will send an electronic list of current event registrants to the attendee or email listed as the main contact as follows:
Yes. The group room block has been negotiated with the designated Convention hotels for the benefit of registered attendees. We hope you will join us and be a part of the NAMIC community who have gathered over the Convention dates. If you attempt to reserve a room outside of NAMIC’s block, we are not able to assist you should you experience any problems with your reservation. We encourage you to reserve a room within the NAMIC block.
Registered guests are invited to attend the Chairman’s Reception on Sunday evening, the Monday Guest Lunch program, and the Wednesday Closing Celebration. Guests are also welcome at all general sessions.
These are three outstanding networking opportunities designed with specific audiences in mind. Individuals who have attained their Professional Farm Mutual Manager designation will be invited to attend a casual breakfast to connect with peers, foster new relationships, and share insights. The FMDC Roundtable Breakfast is for attendees who have attained their Farm Mutual Director Certification. Likewise, the Property Casualty Conference Senior Executive Roundtable Breakfast is intended for the senior management of property/casualty primary insurance companies. This breakfast will have roundtable discussions on topics related to their operations and encourage the sharing of ideas. All three breakfasts will be by invitation only and are offered at no charge to the attendee thanks to generous sponsorship support.
The online registration system accepts credit card payments, check payments, and multiple registrations under the same payment method.
Confirmation is sent via email, so please enter a valid email address. Paying online with a credit card allows for the most expedient confirmation. Confirmation will be sent immediately after you submit your credit card information.
Booth confirmations are sent in two parts. First, an exhibit booth registration confirmation is sent immediately upon submitting the booth registration. This confirms that we have received your application for a booth. A second booth number confirmation is sent once payment is confirmed and the booth number is assigned.
Anyone who wishes to participate needs to be registered individually.
Registration fees include access to all educational sessions, speaker presentation materials, the attendee list, and NAMIC hosted meal functions, refreshment breaks, and receptions. Please review the agenda for full meal details.
