"Target Markets is simply the best way to stay on top of the nuances of the insurance program marketplace. At [TMPAA] meetings we are able to see numerous markets to gauge their appetites and get a general sense of trends in the program space. Some of our most successful programs have had their genesis at carrier meetings that were held at [TMPAA] events. Target Markets has also been a way for AmWINS Program Underwriters to see how other program administrators operate their businesses and some of these interactions have absolutely made us better at what we do. As a charter member of the Association, we have seen how the program space has expanded in the last two decades and our success has been enhanced by attending meetings and being able to access the Association’s library of program specific material."
