FAIA's 118th Convention—A Little Recap! 6995f7ce-a3b9-4eff-8c3c-2b9a0f08e172

6/23/2022


The road to success is not always easy to navigate but as we prepared for FAIA’s 118th Anniversary Convention, we found with hard work and the support of our many attendees, it is possible to achieve! We are grateful that so many of you attended the Convention last week. We had a record number of exhibitors, our hospitality events were back, and believe it or not, attendance this year almost set a record. While we are still counting those last minute and onsite registrations, the only year I can find with greater attendance was in 1987 which was our first year at the Orlando World Center Marriott.

The nonrenewal can be lifted when those documents are received.

Thanks to Citizens' leadership for worki...

Webinar Alert: Special Session 2022—How SB 2D Will Impact the Property Market in Florida 5eea88be-e300-4ff9-9c36-9f02b93c9d21

Timothy Olyphant said it best, “Honestly, I feel like I spent the last ten years just trying to work, just get my hands on the best material I could. I’d like to say that it was quite calculated and genius, my ability to take one step forward and two steps back.” This quote feels like the very essence of the Legislature’s attempts to reign in the fraud and abuse plaguing Florida’s property insurance marketplace.

It is worth noting that a lack of genuine efforts is not to blame. Champions like FAIA’s own, Senators Jim Boyd and Doug Broxson, and Representatives Rommel and Gregory, have fought tirelessly to enact reforms to stabilize marketplace. However, with three reforms in four ye...
