Regional Roundtable
Moderated by: Edward Harper, President and CEO, Statewide Underwriting Services

Tuesday | October 20, 2020
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (ET)
Virtual Program

This event was made possible with the support of Erie and Niagara Insurance Association.


New York is a unique marketplace. The distinct traits of the state’s market make it that much more important that we work as an industry and foster strong relationships as colleagues. Property and casualty insurance companies share many common challenges, but there are particular similarities for regional companies that focus on New York or a select number of states. Learning from each other as industry partners is one our greatest tools. If you enjoy the Small Company Roundtable each year at NYIA’s Annual Conference, then you will not want to miss this virtual roundtable discussion. It will be an excellent opportunity to talk about the vast array of issues companies are facing. We have topics we are ready to address, but first on the agenda are always the items you would like to bring to the conversation. Please send the top three issues on your mind to Kaitlyn Emory at so we can include them in the agenda.
