member_semiann.pngSemi-Annual Conferences

Members come together in person twice a year for a 2-3 day conference. The conference includes a balance of educational sessions to learn about trends and technologies impacting the industry and networking opportunities to meet and forge relationships with other Insurance and financial services executive leaders.


Industry Insights

A conference focused on economic and market trends impacting growth in the industry. Held each year the fourth week in January, these conferences take place in Florida or California.


Consumer Insights

A conference focused on consumer behavior and technology trends impacting the consumer experience. Held each year the third week in June, these conferences take place throughout the US, often in the Midwest.

“Each conference I bring a group of employees from the company with me. I see it as a development opportunity for them to learn more about the industry and continue to build their leadership expertise.” quote-photos-Berlin.pngScott Berlin,SVP/CEO Group Insurance, New York Life

member_semiann.pngPeer Advisory Forums

Discuss critical business issues, share best practices and plan for future growth—with other executives across the industry in similar organizations. No theory rather real world and timely information to help you succeed.

  • Online Advisory Forums – pose questions about relevant topics, share articles or request assistance from your peers.
  • In-Person Advisory Forums – led by an experienced industry leader who reaches out to identify areas of interest from your organization ensuring members get the most out of the private in-person sessions. Forums are conversational with occasional guest speakers. Up to two individuals from the company are invited to join.
“I believe the marketplace will continue to expand. New players will continue to enter, insurtech will continue to break down barriers, new channels will emerge and consumers will continue to want access to products and services they can’t get as an individual. The PIMA Community is perfectly positioned to embrace this changing dynamic and it’s a major reason why our organization is a member.” quote-photos-Garvin22.pngKevin Garvin, President, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

member_semiann.pngInterest Groups

Engage in-person and online with other executives and leaders. Participate in discussion boards, pose questions to fellow members as they arise in your business and learn about the latest market trends to plan for the future. Members are from various company sizes and a range of organizational types for shared learning.

Areas include Leadership, Technology, Sales & Marketing and Legislative & Regulatory. The Legislative & Regulatory Interest Group convenes in person at the semi-annual conference and via webinars throughout the year.

“PIMA members are industry leaders. I’m always impressed with the caliber of people I have the opportunity to meet at PIMA conferences and through my membership. When you’re networking with someone, you are confident they are a leader in their organization and decision maker. Even if they aren’t a fit for your organization they will in many cases put you touch with the people who are. This has been extremely valuable to my business.” quote-photos-Griffen.pngMike Griffin, Principal, ACCEL Law Group

member_semiann.pngPrivate Online Community

Access member profiles in a proprietary database including names and contact information for members. Create a profile for your organization highlighting products and services you offer.

“We were members for a while and then discontinued the membership. We received a call to give PIMA one more try. I’m happy we did! Had we not rejoined we would not have met our marketing and P&C partners. I can’t tell you how many people I know I can contact to simply talk about this business. All of that pays dividends and it takes more than one meeting.” quote-photos-Prescott.pngJames Prescott, President, TMAIT Financial

Participate in additional networking opportunities throughout the year to meet and cultivate relationships with fellow members. Including:

  • An Annual Golf Outing at the Industry Insights Conference

“At our company we focus on relationships because we tend to create long-term ones. To interface and see if we COULD work with someone is important. PIMA is a business community for us. I’ve worked for 3 different companies in the industry and PIMA has been an important organization for each of them.” quote-photos-Warner.pngShannon Warner, EVP, Pearl Insurance
