The July conference will be their largest gathering to date
By Ryan Smith
The California Insurance Wholesale Association (CIWA), a trade organization focused on California’s surplus and surplus wholesalers, carriers, and supporting entities, has announced plans for its upcoming Summer 2023 Forum event.
The 2023 Summer Forum will be CIWA’s largest gathering to date, the organization said. The conference will include CIWA members, directors and board members of national surplus lines associations, affiliates of the Western States Surplus Lines Conference, and non-members considering joining the association.
In previous years, the Western States Surplus Lines Conference required multiple offices to take turns handling event planning and logistics. However, the merged Summer Forum removes that burden and will be planned by CIWA’s managing agency, Direct Connection Advertising & Marketing.
The keynote speaker will be former NFL player Marcus Allen. The conference will also feature a guest appearance by LPGA player Annika Sorenstam at Monday night’s cocktail reception.
