We Still Need Your Help to Reach Our Goal

We are asking members to please make a donation to TMPAA Charities when registering for the 2020 Summit Week Virtual Event to help compensate for the loss of the Networking Golf Tournament fundraising event – the primary funding source for TMPAA Charities.

TMPAA Charities remains committed to providing seven Risk and Insurance Scholarships at three different universities and supporting the Packages from Home initiative to provide care packages to active duty military.

Breckenridge Insurance Group has agreed to match up to $15,000 in donations.

Participate in the
PA Town Hall

The PA Town Hall, scheduled for October 19 at 4:00 PM ET (during Summit Week) will provide the opportunity for several Program Administrators to tell their story about an operations management decision that was made to deal with our new business environment. Examples could include, but not be limited to, solutions developed with your carrier partner, responding to questions from producers, dealing with new claims scenarios, leading a remote staff, or safely returning to an office setting. 

Click here to let us know if you have a story to share. Submissions will be reviewed by a small committee of PAs to select several that would be the best for this Town Hall discussion.
