Our thanks to all of you who attended our annual Policyholders' Conference in Chicago. More than 1,000 attended the event this year, which was particularly gratifying given the ongoing restrictions on travel budgets at a number of member and broker companies.
Many of the general session and breakout session presentations are posted on our website – including Bob Hartwig's presentation on mega-catastrophes and insurance market conditions and David Owen’s presentation on the major strategic, legislative and regulatory issues facing the utility industry.
Your comments on the PHC evaluation forms were very positive regarding the program content, networking opportunities and activities. We are also grateful for your constructive suggestions for improvement and will consider them carefully as we plan next year's conference, which will be held July 16 to July 19, 2012 at the Westin Seattle.
