Thank you for your interest in the 25th Annual Conference and Anniversary Celebration.

We look forward to seeing you next year in Philadelphia, PA.

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

The wait is over! Registration for the 2019 Fidelity Law Association Annual Conference is now open.

All details, including the Conference program, hotel information and registration specifics can be found here on our website. You should also receive a copy of our brochure by USPS and may also download a copy here on our website.

Michael Keeley of Clark Hill Strasburger and Matt Kalin of Travelers have planned a cutting-edge CLE program, plus a celebration befitting our Silver Anniversary, that you will not want to miss. The individual topics to be addressed throughout the day include:

  • Apportioning Social Engineering Losses
  • Fraudulent Invoice and Kickback Schemes
  • Bond Coverage for Public Employees
  • Important Rules of Policy Construction
  • Key Exclusions and Use of Riders
  • Fidelity Law Survey
  • Panel discussion of the important trends in the fidelity industry over the last 25 years

Supervisory Special Agent Timothy Russell of the FBI’s Criminal Cyber Squad, will provide an update on cybercrimes and, importantly and very interestingly, the dark web and its effect on cybercrime.

As part of our celebration, the FLA will be providing everyone a fully searchable thumb drive containing each and every one of the FLA’s 25 Journals from 1994 to the present, as well as a special anniversary mug. And there will of course be an anniversary cake, balloons, and other surprises.

As in past years, we are applying for Continuing Education (CE) and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit.

Following our Conference, the ABA TIPS Fidelity and Surety Law Committee’s will present its fidelity program on Thursday and Friday, November 7 and 8, 2018, also at the Hilton Boston Back Bay Hotel. Please contact the ABA directly for more information.

I hope you will join us in Boston to learn about the most recent developments in fidelity insurance and network with your peers.

SAVE THE DATE: FLA/FSLC Joint Fall Virtual Program November 5-6, 2020, Noon to 2pm EST – The Who, What, Where, When and Why of Fidelity Claims – Updating the Basics for the 21st Century

As we previously announced, we made the difficult decision earlier this year to cancel our 2020 Fidelity Law Association Conference that was to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We hope that you will be happy to learn that the Fidelity Law Association has agreed to partner with the American Bar Association to present a virtual program this year, a two-part webinar to be held on November 5 and 6, 2020. We will share additional details shortly. We hope that you will be able to join us for two days of insightful and timely fidelity programming.
