TMPAA Business Networking

The Association has developed alternative opportunities for our members to connect with key program partners and receive important information about the state of the industry and program business in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


The TMPAA Mobile App, traditionally used for our Mid-Year and Summit events, can now assist in making connections with all members of the Association. We have populated the mobile app with the main contacts of every Program Administrator, Carrier and Service Provider member.

The Mobile App provides an additional method of connection for members and is another way to access resources available when signed in to the Target Markets website.


To replace the face to face meetings normally provided at our Mid-Year Meeting, our Carrier members are ready to schedule calls to discuss your program business inquiries. 

Please complete the meeting request form and we will forward to carriers on your behalf.

Click here to access other resources* to assist in this market discussion process. They include:

  • Carrier Search Portal 
  • TMPAA Marketplace Review
  • Program Carrier Checklist
  • Program Executive Summary
  • Reinsurance Support
  • Access to London Markets

*Must sign in to view all available member resources.
