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. 

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 2018, NAPEO’s Risk Management Workshop is packing up and heading to Houston! With this new, central location we hope more of you, our members, will be able to attend. 

The 2018 workshop will offer relevant, timely and valuable educational programming. If you have a great idea for a topic please submit your suggestions here.
