Participants are divided into groups based on company size at this exclusive event for member company CEOs. Discussion moderators both lead and participate in the all-day sessions where frank discussions foster an environment for idea exchange and the opportunity to ask questions about what’s working for others. Year after year, CEOs tell us this is one of the most valuable events they attend. The participants set the agenda, select the topics and facilitate the discussion. We have found this format is one of the best ways to get answers to questions and build a network of peers.
Again, this year we will be offering the Niche Carrier Warm-up Discussion on Sunday afternoon for NAMIC’s multi-line members doing business in niche markets (such as Jewelers, Pharmacists, Lumbermans, Hortica, Southern Church). This will allow an opportunity for those working in this unique business model to discuss issues they face. Please contact email@example.com if you have questions regarding this session.
"In my opinion, it is the most beneficial meeting that I attend on an annual basis to bring back some great take-away ideas that are appropriate to discuss with the Management Team at Standard Mutual."
- Mark O. Roberts, Jr.

Four Seasons Resort
For nearly 90 years, Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara has been known for fun, luxury, and casual glamour. Its story begins in 1927, when the original Santa Barbara Biltmore was constructed on 22 acres of spectacular beachfront land that had been home to the Santa Barbara Country Club and several fine residences during late 1800s. Tucked between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains on Butterfly Beach, the hotel quickly became the retreat of choice for old Hollywood and America’s most discriminating travelers.
With that pedigree in mind, the resort recently underwent a substantial $305 million dollar renovation – one that took a decade to complete. The reconstruction focused not only on improving the amenities and functionality, but also on bringing back elements of the resort’s romantic history. A major part of the restoration was uncovering original materials from the 1920s and 1930s, such as Art Deco tiles and light fixtures, many of which were refurbished by hand. If the originals could not be recovered, artisans meticulously created reproductions.
Cutting-edge amenities such as plasma TVs, rain showerheads and deep soaking tubs in the guest rooms, as well as the full-service spa, were installed. The result: a stunningly redesigned Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara that perfectly combines the stylish elegance of yesteryear with contemporary chic.
Each room is $245 per night based on single/double occupancy.
CEO Roundtable attendees are responsible for making their own travel and hotel arrangements. NAMIC has contracted a room block for attendees at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara. A set number of rooms are available at the group rate until February 24, 2014 or until the group block is sold out, whichever comes first. While NAMIC works hard to secure a sufficient number of rooms, we cannot guarantee rooms will be available. Please call the resort directly at (805) 969-2261 to make your reservation. Refer to the NAMIC CEO Roundtables group rate when making your reservation at the hotel. Please reserve your room early to secure the group rate.
