2014 Annual Meeting

Dear Colleague:

Mark your calendar for the 2014 Annual Meeting & Expo to be held at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, April 27th through the 30th.

The theme for my year as president is “Mentoring is the Future”.  Throughout the program at the Annual Meeting there will be emphasis on the professional bond producer's role of mentoring clients and others to achieve success. We are not just in the bond business; we are in the mentoring business.

At the meeting each day of programming will have a specific focus.  Mentoring and leadership will be the focus on Monday, with a keynote speaker and panel presentation.  Tuesday’s session’s will explore the ins and outs of the claims process.  In addition, we will have a Monday early afternoon event presented by Travelers Bond that will offer Continuing Education (CE) credit.

The annual meeting kicks off on Sunday evening with a “Texas Hill Country” welcome reception, complete with country music and barbeque fare. Cowboy boots and hats are welcome.  The meeting concludes on Tuesday evening with a modern-chic, sit-down dinner and a spectacular band.  Cocktail attire is recommended.

The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country is the perfect place to bring your family and enjoy a round of golf, head to downtown San Antonio or enjoy the JW Marriott’s River Bluff Water Experience that offers six acres of heated pools, water slides, and a lazy river.

I encourage you to take a moment today to register for this year’s meeting and I look forward to seeing you in Texas.
Best regards,

Lawrence F. McMahon
