Sessions are 90 minutes in length. They address the wide variety of challenges, from coverage to investigation, from evaluation to resolution that confront adjusters and claim managers on a daily basis. Instead of "dry" lectures, you'll be encouraged to actively learn together with a large number of industry peers in every class. You'll hear the latest developments and strategies from subject experts, and learn what others across the industry, and across the nation, are doing with various claim issues and challenges. Over two days you'll be able to attend up to eight 90-minute sessions on a wide assortment of claim topics.

    The was my first PLRB conference and I look forward to attending others.

    Great learning opportunity, good way to clarify how vendors can help or what they do.

    I was able to meet several contractors and adjusters face to face that I've only talked to on the phone in the past. Everything is well organized and I appreciate that.

    The variety of presentations compared to the amount of time allotted for the conference. It was nice getting to choose courses and not feeling like I had to settle for one which didn't apply. All were valuable.

    Material appropriate for what we do. Variety of subject matter and choices.

    The seminars very done very well and was pleased with overall experience.

    PLRB greatly appreciates the following claims service providers for their outstanding support for the 2018 Regional Adjusters Conferences.
