Future Council Meetings:
2013 - Dates September 27-28, Hosted by Insurance Professionals of San Joaquin County
Theme - "Set
Sail into Delta Dreams in 2013"
Recent International Board decision - June 2012
Motion 6 – Eliminate State, Provincial, Commonwealth
and Territorial Councils and move Regional Conferences to be held between September 1 and December 1 each year or in conjunction
and onsite with the International Convention.
Reason: Due to decreasing membership and the economic impact this will reduce the number of meetings,
conferences and conventions we ask our members to support. It will also eliminate the necessity of local associations and
state councils hosting meetings where attendance is declining. Elimination of the Council Meetings and moving the Regional
Conferences to the fall, or in conjunction with our International Convention, will increase attendance at both meetings.
It will reduce the number of layers for administrative activities of the association and encourage more members to
be involved and will streamline our leadership footprint.
