The 2018 WSIA Spring Summit will be held April 11-14 in Phoenix at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa. The Spring Summit will combine elements of two legacy networking events, the AAMGA Annual Meeting and the NAPSLO Mid-Year Leadership Forum, providing effective networking and meeting time for members in one venue.

The event will begin with the Opening Reception at 6:30 p.m. on Wed., April 11. In addition to dedicated meeting time, attendees can expect the association’s Annual Business Meeting and Keynote Speaker at the spring event during the Opening Breakfast on Thurs., April 12. The Lounge and Club will open on Thursday and run through Sat., April 14.

Opportunity to network & conduct business


“We are really pleased with the potential for the Spring Summit,” said Jacque Schaendorf, WSIA Events Committee Co-Chair and Insurance House President & CEO. “This event will be a great opportunity for members to network and conduct business in a smaller group setting, but also to engage in the Annual Business Meeting and the future of the association during our election of officers.”

Work is also currently underway between the two legacy organizations’ foundations to develop a golf opportunity for attendees during the event. Members will receive additional details on that as the Spring Summit nears.

“This event is the result of the refinement of three networking events into two annual events,” said Kathy Schroeder, WSIA Events Committee Co-Chair and Sierra Specialty President & CEO. “I think it will effectively meet members’ needs while also representing a significant efficiency for all of us in terms of time and travel.”

Registration opens in January


Registration for Spring Summit will open in January. Look for more information in the WSIA News in coming months.
