Risk Management Workshop

NAPEO's 2019 Risk Management Workshop
The Thompson Nashville
Nashville, TN
March 6-7, 2019

Register Now

NAPEO's Risk Management Workshop has evolved into the largest gathering of PEO risk management professionals, carriers, brokers, and agents. Nowhere else will you find the PEO industry's top risk managers, key insurance executives, regulatory experts, and policy makers gathered for such an in depth look at PEOs and workers' compensation. 

The 2019 workshop will offer relevant, timely and valuable educational programming. Attendees will hear from risk management experts, get tips from leaders in the industry, and be able to take home ideas you can employ back in the office immediately to improve your risk management practices. The workshop will feature hands-on breakout sessions allowing participants to focus your attention on specific topics.  

For 2019, NAPEO’s Risk Management Workshop is continuing on our tour of the US and will head to Nashville! We hope this exciting city will draw attendees to come for the sessions and stay for some fun!

On March 6, attendees will enjoy a fun evening dining on southern BBQ at Nashville's famous B.B. King's Blues Club. Joe West & Friends, Grammy award--winning hit songwriters, will talk about the songs they have written and produced. Attendees will also rock, sing, and dance along as they perform some of their songs. An event like this in Music City is perfect way to cap-off a day of programming and education. ​

Who Should Attend?

  • PEO risk managers
  • PEO owners
  • PEO senior managers with risk management responsibility
  • Insurance and risk management service providers to the PEO industry
