PIWA annual recognition dinner: Oct. 25, Battery Gardens
Don't miss PIWA's event of the year: our Annual Recognition Dinner will once again be held at Battery Gardens, on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

Be sure to attend to recognize your outgoing and new PIWA leadership, to see and be seen, to network with wholesalers and company representatives, and to hear the views of one of our industry's most-respected economists on the future of the marketplace.

We are very excited that Dr. Steven N. Weisbart, CLU, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist for the Insurance Information Institute, will be the event's keynote speaker. Those of you who heard Dr. Weisbart's presentation at a PIWA conference several years ago will attest that not only will he provide meaningful information, he will do so in an interesting and entertaining manner.

PIWA Legislative Representative Bob Pastel and ELANY Executive Director will provide an update on key state and federal legislative issues before the dinner, followed by a networking cocktail reception.
