Agenda Overview

NAMIC’s mission is to strengthen members and the mutual insurance industry by leadership in advocacy, public policy, public affairs, and business-support services. At the Annual Convention we deliver on that mission in spades. Discover all NAMIC has to offer at the association’s largest member gathering, where you’ll find informative sessions and valuable business opportunities for your company. The best part? You’ll be learning and growing alongside your peers, as we all learn how to tackle the biggest issues facing our industry.
