First Party Property Conference Rescheduled - New Date: November 17, 2017

September 21, 2017

We hope everyone in Hurricane Irma's path weathered the storm safely and can now join Kubicki Draper and guest speakers from GHD and Federated National Insurance for the all-day First Party Property Seminar.

We decided not to wait until the beginning of next year to reset the conference so we can present on the many issues our clients may be facing in the wake of the recent storms. To that end, we hope you can join us on Friday, November 17.

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the program begins at 9:00 a.m. Lunch is included and guests are invited to stay for a cocktail reception immediately following the presentations.



We have a great program lined up:
