  • Four educational tracks [schedule at-a-glance] with many sessions offering continuing education credits. Topics include general risk management,  safety/claims, workers' compensation, employee practices and benefits.
  • Networking events to get to know peers from across the state.
  • Excellent value in educational programming thanks to our sponsor partnerships.
  • The largest risk management Exhibition in Texas offering a wealth of ideas and resources.

CONFERENCE LOCATION

We are planning a hybrid conference!  A live conference in Galveston and an online option for those who are unable to travel.  The virtual conference will be held on Texas PRIMA's Learning Management System! Sessions will be live and will be recorded for those who are unable to attend during the specified time. Texas PRIMA's virtual conference is about more than just education - it is about being with each other! Our conference platform allows for a virtual exhibit hall, networking with exhibitors and attendees as well as a bit of fun - who doesn't love door prizes?
