TMPAA Carrier
 Summit
Meet and Greet
50+ Program Markets
 
We received very good feedback from the attendees at last year's meeting about this event.  The “Meet and Greet” is designed to allow program administrators to hear about our Carrier members program strategy and appetites.  The event is not designed for involved discussions about program submissions, but could be used to set meetings at another point during the event. We had several suggestions to keep things moving by signaling every 10 or 15 minutes so new introductions could be made.         

This two hour event on Tuesday morning 10-19-10 will ensure that Program Administrator Attendees will be able to connect with all of our carrier members. 

Our traditional carrier meetings will still occur later that same afternoon for more formal exploration of program business opportunities
