A New Way to Network

Networking has evolved to accommodate an increasingly virtual landscape. The TMPAA Stay Connected mobile app is one way we are evolving to meet this demand. Accessible from your phone, tablet, or desktop, Stay Connected condenses the networking features you value most, including chatting with Target Markets members and searching for best fit business partners.

  • Network efficiently with in-app search portals to find, save, and take notes on Carriers, PAs, or Service Providers.
  • Chat privately with fellow members.
  • Launch resources including our Carrier Search Portal, COVID-19 Information, and other market-finding tools.
  • Tune into webinars and podcasts.

20th Annual TMPAA Summit

October 19-21 | Scottsdale, AZ

While the ultimate decision will be made based on recommendations from the CDC, governmental guidelines, and registration interest from members, the Association, with the support of the TMPAA Advisory Board, is currently planning to hold our 20th Annual Summit, October 19-21, in Scottsdale, AZ.  We are working with the Westin Kierland hotel to develop the safest possible environment to conduct the event.  

Our meeting registration will open next week. You can expect periodic updates from the Association over the next several months as we monitor conditions and make decisions in the best interests of TMPAA members. We strongly encourage you to register if you plan to attend, as estimating participation is very important for us. Please note, you will not be financially committed should we cancel the event and reimbursement will be provided in a timely manner.  

We hope you will join us for the 20th Annual TMPAA Summit providing access to more than 60 program carriers including London Markets, premier service providers, reinsurance support, program development and distribution resources, educational opportunities, and networking with other program professionals.

Register for the Next Webinar on June 4

The 2019 State of Program Business Study indicated that over 40% of program administrators use a Lloyd’s Syndicate for one of their programs. The state of the Lloyd's market is critically important to this industry segment, now responsible for $40.5 billion in written premium.

This webinar will explore the impact of COVID-19 on Lloyd's and what program administrators can expect from this marketplace going forward. Our panel of experts will explore:

  • The state of Lloyd’s market before COVID-19
  • How is COVID-19 impacting Lloyd’s now?
  • What will Lloyd’s be like after COVID-19?
  • What sort of insurance market globally will we have post COVID-19?
  • Will COVID-19 impact program capacity at Lloyd's?
  • What lasting effects will there be on the Lloyd’s market and how it currently operates?
