Stephanie Lynch, RPLU is AVP Treaty Reinsurance for Safety National Re in Morristown, NJ. She is the first Future PLUS member to register for the 2018 PLUS Conference, and shared some of her reasons why its an event worth flying across the country to attend.

Why is it a priority for you to register for the PLUS conference?
The PLUS conference is a whirlwind of ingesting information from esteemed panelists, meeting with brokers and clients, and networking to build strong connections with other professionals in the industry. It is a busy few days, but with so many professional liability industry people in the same place at the same time, you’re bound to have a positive and productive week.

What are you most looking forward to about the 2018 PLUS Conference in San Diego?
Interacting with existing clients and potential new clients, networking with industry peers and leaders, reflecting on the past year in the market and looking forward to the next. I also gained a lot of insight from last year’s keynote speakers and look forward to the 2018 keynotes. PLUS puts together a great event, packed with information and networking opportunities and it’s always a great way to kick off 1/1 renewal season!

Why is it important for young professionals to attend the PLUS Conference? 
It is a great opportunity as a young professional to find yourself amidst many great industry leaders for a few days. You have the chance to do a lot of networking as well as learn about various issues and trends in the professional liability market, which you can then take back to your desk.

Harvey Heller the First to Register for 2018 PLUS Conference

Congratulations to Harvey Heller for being the first person to register for the 2018 PLUS Harvey HellerConference in San Diego. Registration opened up yesterday Thursday May 17, and Harvey wasted no time claiming his spot at the event. Harvey is a Shareholder and Managing Director at the Law Firm Maddin, Hauser, Roth & Heller, P.C. in Southfield Michigan.

Harvey’s been coming to the PLUS Conference every year since 1985. PLUS caught up with him to discuss why…

Question: Why was it a priority for you to register for the PLUS Conference?

Harvey: PLUS provided me with a broad view of the professional liability insurance industry in my initial years and continues to do so today especially given the international participation.

Question: Why have you decided to stay at the host hotel, the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego?

Harvey: For me, staying at the host hotel is very important. “Shlepping” from another site is inconvenient. That’s why I registered early!

Question: What are you most looking forward to about the 2018 PLUS Conference in San Diego?

Harvey: Interacting with existing carrier relationships and seeing what carriers or syndicates are entering or re-entering the space is primary. I am proud to be a part of a network of firms who also attend. PLUS provides us with an opportunity to get together and do some planning. Lastly, I’m told there is a great grilled cheese truck in San Diego and I won’t miss that, I assure you!

You can join Harvey, and thousands of other industry professionals, for the premier professional liability industry event by registering for the 2018 PLUS Conference in San Diego. See you there!
