The golf outing is always a great opportunity to reconnect with NAMIC friends and kick off Convention week. This fun, low-key golf scramble will be held at Renditions Golf Club, which features replicas of holes from major championship venues, all located in a serene corner of Maryland.
This year, the outing will benefit the NAMIC Mutual Insurance Foundation, as a portion of the proceeds will go to the NAMIC Mutual Insurance Foundation Scholarship to help provide scholarships to deserving students pursuing insurance/risk management careers. By 2023, the foundation expects to raise $50,000 annually for the scholarship fund through events such as this golf outing and contributions from company and personal donors. Please join us to become part of the solution to our industry’s need for talent. For more information about the scholarship program or how to support the outing by hosting a foursome, please contact Krista Baber.
Registration for the golf outing is available as an event option on our Annual Convention registration form. You can register just yourself or multiple golfers at once. If you are already registered for Convention but not the golf outing, you can add it by using the Registration Additions form.
If you have questions about registering for the outing, please contact Julie Bacher.Register for Golf Outing
A Sunday morning tradition, this event is non-denominational and includes song, scripture readings, and a brief presentation from an inspirational leader serving others in need. It is a calming, spiritual moment of peace in the midst of a busy event, and we encourage you to come together to celebrate your beliefs, whatever they are. More information on this year’s special guest will be available soon. If you are interested in participating in the NAMIC Choir, please indicate so on your registration form. Please contact Larry Baile if you have any questions.
Tickets to this breakfast are $53 and can be purchased when registering for Convention. A limited number of tickets will be available for sale on-site at the NAMIC Event Information Desk.
Each convention attendee is invited to participate in the first fundraising luncheon at Convention to support the NAMIC Mutual Insurance Foundation Scholarship program. This function is brought to you by the NAMIC Merit Society, and replaces the traditional NAMIC Merit Society Luncheon. All convention attendees are encouraged to attend! A portion of the proceeds from the lunch will “fund it forward” by providing scholarships to deserving students pursuing insurance/risk management careers. By 2023 the Foundation expects to raise $50,000 annually for the Scholarship fund through events like this luncheon, and from contributions from company and personal donors. Please join us and become part of the solution to our industry’s need for talent. For more information about the luncheon or scholarships, please contact Krista Baber.
Tickets are $125 for attendees — and because it is for a good cause, you will receive a tax deduction for a portion of your ticket price. Guests may attend for $75. Tickets can be purchased when registering for Convention (and a limited number of tickets will be available for sale at the NAMIC Event Information Desk).
When we come together, we can achieve great things. It’s true for our businesses and the world around us. Help us achieve something truly great by joining us for the 16th annual Fun Run and Walk benefiting St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund children’s cancer research. Choose between a 5K run or a 3K walk for a health break during your busy convention schedule. If you would like to attend, make sure to select this activity on your Convention registration form. You can also sign up on-site at the NAMIC Event Information Desk, starting Saturday, September 21 through Monday, September 23.
Registration cost is $50 per person. Proceeds from this event will benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation is just one example of the good our industry is doing. Founded by members of the insurance industry, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most-promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives. Every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer — one in five does not survive. Since 2006, St. Baldrick’s has committed more than $101 million to research grants. The foundation now funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
There are numerous opportunities to support this great organization. Check out more details here.
