2017 SITA Conference

State insurance trade association executives face many mountains in representing our members, but reaching the summit is more achievable when we make the climb together!

That’s reason #1 for registering TODAY for the 2017 National State Insurance Trade Association Conference: Learn from your peers and national experts about the top legislative, regulatory and communications challenges impacting the P & C insurance marketplace. If you haven’t dealt with these issues in your state yet, it’s just a matter of time! This is your opportunity to get informed not just on hot insurance topics, but potential pitfalls and strategic solutions.   

 Reason #2: Network with insurance leaders ranging from veteran state association executive directors to insurance company decision makers to national trade and industry experts. It’s not enough to be in the know in your state, you need to know what resources are available to your association, member companies and insurance consumers. Plus, your peers’ good ideas and successful campaigns are meant to be “borrowed”!

Reason #3: Have you visited the renowned Colorado Rockies when the Aspens are in full color??? Vail one of the U.S.’s premier ski resort areas with summer/fall activities and attractions ranging from hiking and world-class golf to zip lining or just taking in the breathtaking mountain views. It’s a walkable mountain town with shops and restaurants in a Swiss Village setting. www.vail.com

Reason #4: GOLF!! 
Did you know your ball goes FARTHER at high altitude? You can be the amazing golfer you always knew you were! We have the great privilege of playing at the semi-private resort course at the Sonnenalp Club! This is a 7074 yd. par 71 resort course and if you have never played in the beautiful setting of Vail, you absolutely MUST try it! Check out the scorecard and guest information.
  • Cost is $200 per player (includes private shuttle to and from course) and $65 for rental clubs.  
  • Tee times start at 10 AM on Tuesday 9/19. Heather will be putting the 4-somes together, so please send an email to heather@rmiia.org if you have specific people you would like to play with.
  • If you have not registered, the form now asks about golf and will add all golf costs to your bill. If you have already registered, please contact Heather at heather@rmiia.org or (303) 790-0216 to sign up.

DRAFT AGENDA (still a work in progress)

Get ready for mountains of fun! We have invited Jim Davidson - motivational keynote speaker, to come share some inspirational stories about facing life's adventures and overcoming adversity. In Jim's mountain climbing career, he has many times had to dig deep and find the strength to continue. He lost his climbing partner on Mount Rainer and was on Everest when the Nepal Earthquake struck. Jim recently returned from Everest, after a sucessful summit. There will be a lot to hear about his adventures! Check out his site - this is NOT to be missed! http://www.speakingofadventure.com/
