NASBP's Next 2020 Virtual Event: Preparing for the Future Nationally and Regionally

NASBP is thrilled with the support and participation the membership has shown for the May and July 2020 Virtual Events, and is excited to announce the next event in the series: September Virtual Event: Preparing for the Future Nationally and Regionally.

The September 23 Virtual Event will feature two Keynote Sessions, one focused on what surety professionals should understand about business bankruptcies, and the second on an economic forecast as it relates to the 2020 Elections, current COVID19 concerns, and the future of lending.  The Keynote Sessions will be followed by three breakout sessions, developed by NASBP Regional Directors to cover topics pertinent to their specific areas of the country.

Offered the day prior to the Virtual Event, on September 22, will be Virtual Steering Committee Meetings, hosted by the NASBP Regional Directors.  These meetings, which are normally held at the fall Regional Meetings, give the membership the opportunity to discuss current industry topics and challenges at the local level.  All NASBP Members, Affiliates, and Associates are invited to participate.

Further information, including programming details and registration information, can be found below.  As with the previously held May and July Virtual Events, all upcoming Virtual Events in the series will be complimentary to NASBP Members, Affiliates, and Associates  or for a small fee for non-members and available to view after the presentation at your convenience. The final event in the Virtual Series will be coming in early November.

If you missed the May or July Virtual Events, both are available to view below!
