Business: The NRRA Edge

NRRA Conference Returns to Chicago


The National Risk Retention Association is well-known for its annual conference, which pairs hard-hitting, entertaining speakers with networking opportunities aplenty.

This year, though, the NRRA Conference Committee has made plans to reinvent the convention. In fact, “Reinventing Convention” is this year’s theme. The 2018 NRRA National Conference takes place at the Sofitel Magnificent Mile in Chicago on Oct. 3-5, 2018.

“We like to think our conference is a trendsetter in the insurance industry,” NRRA Executive Director Joe Deems says. “We discuss topics before they’re trendy. We invite speakers who challenge the status quo. And we make sure our sponsors have ample opportunities to be seen and do business for their firms.”

How we’ve reinvented standard conference fare is simple: We listened to attendees tell us what they wanted to see at this year’s gathering.

For example:

  • An insider’s view on how some of our best performing companies handle their claims and risk management, overcoming state laws disrupting RRGs in the process.
  • An “exchange” session that will isolate and address some of the most frequently erupting issues confronting RRGs and RPGs.
  • A “sneak peak” at NRRA’s newest member benefits.
  • More to come….


“We’ve got a lot in store for attendees, as always,” Deems said. “We are excited for our regular attendees – and several new faces – to see what we have to offer.”
