Message from the President
TMPAA Members and Friends,
Considering this brutal winter, I'm sure that most of you are looking forward to enjoying a touch of spring in Baltimore at the Mid Year Meeting.
Of a more serious nature is our shared concern over the economic recovery, the political process, and the constantly changing global issues. All of these matters influence the insurance climate and the economic world of clients, and thus once again, we should all benefit from the open exchange of ideas and information for which TMPAA is known.
To provide strategies on leadership, we are privileged to have a former Joint Chief of Staff, National Security Advisor, and U.S. Secretary of State, General Colin Powell (Ret.) as our keynote speaker.
Addressing the state of the insurance industry will be W. Marston (Marty) Becker, newly announced President and CEO of Alterra Capital Holdings Limited, the new company created by the merger of Max Capital Group and Harbor Point. As a veteran of our industry, and experienced in the program administrator segment, Marty is well-suited to the task.
Target Markets continues to look for new resources it can provide for its members. Be sure to follow our progress on initiatives like Target University and the Leadership 2.0 (under 40) group. Plan to attend the Marketing/Social Media, HR Outsourcing and E&O presentations, all designed to help you run a Best Practice Program Business Operation.
I hope that the 2010 TMPAA Mid Year Meeting is an informative, productive, and pleasant experience for all. Look forward to seeing you there.
