Embracing Emerging Technology

Wednesday General Session | Oct. 18

Adopting new technology and tools to bring greater efficiency and productivity to your business is essential to keep a competitive edge. ChatGPT, and similar AI technology, is the latest tech-buzzword but it isn’t just hype. It has the potential to revolutionize the insurance industry by providing a wide range of services, products, and a customer experience almost unimaginable a few years ago. Join Paolo Cuomo,  Executive Director of Gallagher Re's Strategy Advisory at the Summit on Wednesday morning to discuss the impact and implementation of this emerging technology.


Women's Leadership Group Survey 

Please respond by August 11.

The Women’s Leadership Committee is interested in feedback from women to further develop the leadership lunches held at each TMPAA event. Your participation in this brief survey will help create content in support of our mission to provide an additional business incubation and professional development forum for women in the Association. The group is designed to promote leadership in the program industry segment and encourage women currently in these leadership positions to join and participate in the TMPAA.
