Safe Summit Planning

Registrations for the 21st Annual TMPAA Summit are currently up over 10% from the same time in 2019, which was our largest meeting to date. There has also been significant growth in Carrier, Service Provider and Program Administrator membership in the Association since the beginning of this year.

In order to harness the increased energy in program business with an in-person Summit, we are working closely with the Westin Kierland to design a meeting that allows us to gather in the safest manner possible and where individuals can feel free to take precautions that allow them to feel comfortable attending. Details are posted on the Safe Summit Planning page.

Please remember that the Association is expecting that all attendees be vaccinated or take a COVID test within 48 hours prior to arrival. Per current CDC recommendations, unvaccinated individuals will be expected to wear a mask. 

We have recently created outdoor networking space for attendees that will create additional physical distance for the indoor networking areas. More to follow on this soon.

Additional safety protocols are being put in place. Expect to hear more about this soon.

For areas with high concentrations of attendees, you may find signs like this at the Summit:

The TM Team and Advisory Board are focused on creating a meeting that will satisfy a wide range of opinions about COVID safety. We are fortunate enough to be a group where many of us know each other. Accommodating friends, business partners and new members with varying levels of comfort returning to in person meetings will be the key to our success.

Target Markets provides two different methods to assist with setting up meetings during the Summit. Attendee lists are emailed to registered participants every other week (last update 9/1) and it is posted on the Summit page, accessible to members once signed in to the site. We also have two simple forms if looking to meet with a Carrier or Service Provider member. These submissions come directly to the TMPAA and will be forwarded on to the appropriate contact to set up a meeting.

Reinsurance Intermediary Members

The Association has traditionally limited membership of reinsurance intermediaries, minimizing any potential impediment to direct PA/Carrier contacts. With the substantial growth of program business, new alternative structures for program development, and recognizing the potential value of multiple intermediaries, the Advisory Board has decided to offer a limited number of highly qualified, program-focused intermediaries the opportunity to apply for membership.

Please welcome the two companies below who will join BMS Re US as reinsurance intermediary members of the TMPAA.

  • Aon Reinsurance Solutions
  • Guy Carpenter & Company, LLC
