37th Annual Convention & Trade Show, 2006
--by Bethan Hyde, York Insurance Services Group, Inc.

Mark your calendars! The FASI 37th Annual Conference and Trade Show is July 23, 2006, to July 26, 2006, at The Ritz Carlton, Naples, Florida.
FASI’s annual golf outing is Sunday at Tiburon Golf Club (see golf article for details). The Welcome Reception for attendees and guests will be in The Club Room on Sunday. Meet the FASI Officers and the Board of Directors, while they enjoy the opportunity to socialize in anticipation of an excellent educational program.
The FASI Business Meeting kicks off Monday with the 2005-2006 Board of Directors in attendance and recognized for their contributions for the past year. The new slate for the 2006-2007 Board of Directors will be read at this meeting. Immediately following the FASI Business Meeting are the general sessions with topics such as: Pending Rules, EDI, and Penalties with Greg Jenkins with the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation; Legislative Update with Dennis Ross (R), Florida House of Representatives, Ross, Vecchio & Trussell, P.A.; and a panel to discuss “Spend Money to Save Money” with Kevin Cooper, NCH Healthcare System, Inc., Brian Wolff, MD, Collier Neurologic Specialists, LLC, and Randal Thomas, Esq. Registrants will receive a playing card at each session and the attendee with the best poker hand will win $500 cash! Monday evening concludes with the Exhibitor's Showcase, Reception and Prize Drawings.
Tuesday’s general sessions address topics for all attendees, regardless of what sector in the self insured market you are in. Jeffrey Fieldson with Marsh USA, Inc. will discuss “Hurricanes & Natural Disasters”; Karla Nickell, Mahoney & Associates, Mike Swanson, Wachovia Insurance, and Greg DeLoach, Wachovia Insurance will share their knowledge on “Beyond Self Insurance”; and finally a cast of many will entertain and educate you with their rendition of “As the Claim Turns”. Tuesday evening is the 37th Annual “FASI Las Vegas” Dinner & Casino Party with entertainment by The Don Juceam Orchestra (best known for Don Juceam’s impersonation of Frank Sinatra). There will be games and prizes for the children. Lots of food, music, gambling, and prizes will fill the evening, so plan to attend!
We look forward to seeing everyone. Please visit our website for more information: www.fasi-fl.org.

FASI Annual Golf Outing 2006
--by Bethan Hyde of York Insurance Services Group, Inc.
The FASI Annual Golf Outing will be held on July 23, 2006, 8:00 a.m. at a Greg Norman Course, and home of the Franklin Templeton Golf Shootout, Tiburon Golf Club in Naples Florida. The format will be a scramble. Check in starting at 7:30 a.m. with golf starting at 8:00 a.m. Lunch and prizes will be served at Tiburon in the Sydney Room at the end of play.
Sponsorships are available. Beverage, lunch, photos, tee signs, specialty holes, goody bags & door prizes will be greatly appreciated. Golf tee sponsorship signs will be displayed at tee boxes, recognition and acknowledgment flyers placed on each golf cart; and sponsorship signs displayed throughout the conference. Each registered sponsor will be given a ribbon recognizing their continued support and dedication to FASI.
A 50/50 raffle was established last year in Honor of Fran Brown. Last year we raised $180 and a donation was made to the American Heart Association in her Memory. I hope it will continue to grow.
We will continue with the envelopes at the golf outing. With a $20.00 donation you receive an envelope that contains a ticket to participate in the Putting Contest, play the “Golf Poker Hand” around the course and two “Mikeigans” (mulligan).
Thank you to everyone who participates for his or her commitment and loyalty to FASI. Without that dedication and support this event would not be possible.
