As I travel home from our Construction Conference still exhilarated from the energy of our community, I want to share my thoughts and appreciation. From an engaging first-timers welcome to the compelling workshops and content, the conference captured the spirit of CLM: meaningful learning, quality networking, identifying and solving industry problems, and, of course, doing it all while making lasting memories together with colleagues and friends. I want to sincerely thank our Construction Community, volunteers, members, and sponsors who made this conference such a success. Your dedication to CLM and passion for this industry are why we exist. We couldn’t do it without you!
It’s hard to believe we are embarking on the final quarter of the year. Where has the time gone? The CLM team is working on a big finish to 2023, and an even more exciting 2024. There’s still plenty of content, community, and connections to be had before we close out the year, like our Professional Development Day on Nov. 8 in Hartford, Connecticut. I’m thrilled to have the Connecticut deputy attorney general and section chief of the FBI’s Cyber Division join our lineup of expert industry speakers who will dive into topics like artificial intelligence, the dark web, active shooter situations, biometrics, privacy regulation, and catastrophic losses. And, of course, we cap off the year with our Focus Conference and Holiday Party in New York on Nov. 29. This event sells out every year. It’s a day of interactive discussions on the hottest topics in claims for that last minute CE/CLE followed by a memorable evening in magical Manhattan with a celebration at Bryant Park Grill.
As for 2024, we are putting the finishing touches on our plans, so stay tuned for exciting developments! One thing I can tell you about next year is that registration for the 2024 Annual Conference (April 2-4 in San Francisco) opens on Dec. 6 at noon Eastern time, so mark your calendar!
Thank you all for your continuous support and enthusiasm. We’re here to make every moment count, so we love your feedback to help us continually improve, grow, and deliver value. If you have ideas, I would love to hear them—drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and together we will build the future for your CLM.
All the best –
