Target Markets Summit Meeting a Success

November 20, 2002

The Target Markets Program Administrator’s Association recently met for the Annual National Summit Meeting in Tempe, Ariz.

The event, billed as “The Most Intensive Three Days of Program-Related Issues You’ll Ever Experience,” drew over 250 insurance professionals involved in Program Business, including 14 carrier partners with dedicated program business divisions.

The association, comprised of wholesale brokers, outlined what type of program business they will entertain in the coming year. The continuous threat to every carrier’s presentation is that data is the key to any program today, primarily loss run data.

The Target Markets Program Administrator’s Association also announced its plans to launch Target in Jan. 2003. “The feedback we received regarding the Summit was overwhelmingly positive,” said Ray Scotto, executive director of Target Markets. “The presentations and workshops from our carrier and vendor partners gave the attendees exactly what they cane for. The most outstanding aspect of the event was the tremendous opportunity for Program Administrators to network with each other, the markets that were available on site, and the vendors who provide program related services.”

20003 Board members where also selected at the meeting. They are Glenn Clark, Board president, Rockwood Programs; Joe Palumbo, New Age Brokerage; Tim Hanna, Regency Group; Richard Mattei, R.F. Mattei and Associates; Terri Clark, AIG; Fran Sarmiento, Norman, Spencer and McKernan; Arthur Seifert, Lighthouse Underwriters; Norm Trudel, GMI; C.T. Kelly, CIC Insurance Brokers; Collier Simpson, Sports and Fitness Corp.; Marty O’Brien, Allied Insurance Brokers; Joe Maurer, Commonwealth Professional Group and Greg Thompson, THOMCO.
