PLUS Launches Applications for 2020 LAMP Cohort

LAMP banner 2019

PLUS has opened the call for eligible professional liability professionals to apply for the 2020 cohort of the Diversity Leadership & Mentoring Program (LAMP). Deadline for submissions is Friday, April 5, 2019, at 5:00 pm EST.

“Today’s competitive environment requires organizations to develop leaders who bring a wide variety of professional and personal experience to the marketplace,” said PLUS Executive Director Robbie Thompson. “PLUS’s answer to that challenge is LAMP.”

LAMP is a leadership development training program for PLUS members from diverse and traditionally under-represented groups within the professional liability insurance industry. During the one-year experience, participants receive group leadership training, pairing with a seasoned PLUS mentor, registration, travel, and lodging to the annual PLUS Conference and other select education programs, and access to up to three PLUS Curriculum study modules and three complimentary RPLU examinations.

Participants are selected out of a competitive application process overseen by seven members of the PLUS Diversity & Inclusion Committee.

Further details on the program, including how to apply, can be found here.
