The Insurance Information Institute, the Insurance Council of New Jersey and the New York Insurance Association are pleased to serve as your hosts for the 2004 annual conference of the State Insurance Trade Associations (SITA) in New York City at the Metropolitan Hotel, Lexington Avenue at 51st Street.

Each year, the SITA conference provides an opportunity for state insurance trade associations to meet, compare notes, learn from each others’ experiences and develop coordinated messages on the many issues facing today’s insurance industry. This year's agenda will include discussions on terrorism and insurance, the economics of the industry, credit scoring, CLUE and management issues facing state insurance trade association executives.

To welcome you to New York City, the opening reception on Sunday, October 10, will be held on the hotel's penthouse floor, with views of midtown Manhattan and an outdoor patio.

Please note that since most Broadway theatres are "dark" on Monday nights, our group dinner will take place on Monday evening the 11th; Tuesday the 12th will be the evening you are "on your own."

Use the tabs on this page to access registration forms, the program agenda and, in the future, attendance lists and speaker bios. This site will be updated regularly, so check back often.

We encourage you to make the most of your visit to our city and will be happy to help you with any special requests you may have.
