Well, I’d heard that the CPCU Society expected record or near record attendance at its annual gathering in Honolulu. If the line for registration today was any indication, attendance at this year’s CPCU Society conference is high, indeed.

I decided this morning that I’d stop by the Hawaii Convention Center to check in and pick up my conference materials on the way back to my hotel from an opportunity to sit down and chat this morning with incoming CPCU Society President James L. Britt, managing director at March USA Inc. in Charlotte, N.C. Recalling past conferences, I expected I’d quickly pick up my materials and be on to whatever might be next.

To my surprise, I encountered a line snaking through the exhibit area, and about a half an hour wait. Fortunately, the company around me was quite good, and I enjoyed a fine conversation about enterprise risk management in the insurance industry, the current state of air travel and other interesting topics.

Could it be that the larger crowd at this year’s conference is a reflection on CPCUs and CPCU designates preferring Hawaii to last year’s conference venue, Nashville? Perhaps. Though I enjoyed the opportunity to visit the Grand Old Opry last year, I’m not going to beef about the view of the Pacific and Diamond Head from my hotel room at this year’s conference.

Anyway, there are plenty of interesting sessions on the agenda at this year’s conference, with topics ranging from agency survival to diversity and inclusion in the industry to enterprise risk management, and I expect to post again from this year’s CPCU conference over the next couple of days. And of course I’ll be writing more from the conference and from my conversation this morning with Jim Britt in an upcoming issue of Industry Focus.
