New England Chapter 22nd Annual Education Day – June 6, 2018

A note from our VP and Chair of our Education Date Committee...
On June 6 over 125 insurance professionals across the northeast and beyond gathered at the Publick House in Sturbridge, MA for our 22nd annual Education Day. Our daylong meeting featured some 15 sessions covering a wide range of current property & casualty as well as life & health issues. We were honored to be joined by regulators from all New England states, including incoming New Hampshire Commissioner John Elias and Rhode Island Insurance Superintendent Elizabeth Dwyer who also gave the keynote luncheon address on insurance regulation. Indications are that all in attendance enjoyed the day. We look forward to seeing you at our 23rd annual Education Day, Spring 2019.
