NASBP's Next 2020 Virtual Event: Being Present and Connecting Surety in a Virtual World

Building on the success of the May Virtual Event: Bonding with Bandwidth which had over 430 registrants, NASBP would like to announce the 2020 Virtual Event series which will be held throughout the remainder of 2020.  NASBP President Mark Munekawa, expanding on his presidential theme this year, being present to win, would like to stress that presence, whether virtual or physical, is even more essential to keeping the NASBP membership connected in these difficult times.

On July 22 join us for the July Virtual Event: Being Present and Connecting Surety in a Virtual World with two great sessions designed to help you and your business succeed in the new normal! We will kick off the event with Zach Mendelson of EPIC and Mike Specht of INSURICA Southwest who will debut and discuss the updated Be Guaranteed To Succeed Campaign Producer Toolkit launching in July! This session will be followed up by a fantastic Keynote titled, “Presence in Chaos” with international speaker and trainer Scott Mann of Rooftop Leadership who will focus on how to not only cultivate and develop relationships and connections with clients virtually via Zoom and other platforms in these uncertain times, but also how to guide your clients as strong leaders in the Surety Bond industry. You may remember Scott from his TED talks or his engaging presentation at the NASBP 2018 Annual Meeting.

The series will continue with Virtual Events planned for the months of September and November.  Each will provide top-notch information and critical updates.  Further information, including programming details and registration information, will be available on the NASBP website in the coming months.  As with the previously held May Virtual Event, all three upcoming Virtual Events in the series will be complimentary to the NASBP Members, Affiliates and Associates and available for download after the presentation.

These Virtual Events are in addition to and not a replacement for other planned NASBP meetings and events this year, such as the NASBP Regional Meetings. Given the present uncertainties regarding the continuing risks of the pandemic, however, these Virtual Events may serve as pivot points for additional content should it be necessary to cancel a particular NASBP in-person meeting to safeguard health.  

Register now to join us on July 22nd!
