I've been attending PLRB Conferences for over 30 years and continue to enjoy attending and plan to do so in the future. Keep up the good work.
It was a very positive experience and well worth the trip. I hope to attend future PLRB events.
Met people who I've wanted to identify and meet for many years.
I really appreciated the opportunity to be a part of this event as a student. These events make me even more excited for the future in this career field.
Great job as always. Kudos to PLRB!
I was a first timer - I enjoyed the conference and thought it was very well put together.
Great job of keeping up with the times with education and speakers. Look forward to next year.
I was able to make some new contacts and revisit with some old.
Overall a great experience and opportunity to gain knowledge
PLRB greatly appreciates the following claims service providers for their outstanding support for the 2019 Claims Conference.
