This past month the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP) held its 20th annual conference in Orlando, Florida. RMI has been involved in NASP since its inception and was proud to be part of the 20 year celebration of subrogation professionals. Attorneys from our property and auto divisions were also presenters at the conference.

At the Sunday night reception, NASP President Kevin DeGarmo presented RMI partners Glenna Roberts and David Matejczyk with 20 year perfect attendance awards. Dave was the conference chair at the inaugural (and two subsequent) NASP Annual Conferences. Both are past board members of the organization.

The following morning, RMI Attorney Amanda Martanovic received her Certified Subrogation Recovery Professional (CSRP) designation. Amanda oversees the automobile subrogation division at RMI. Amanda was also a co-presenter in the automobile track at the conference. The session “Let’s Play Categories: Dealing with Challenging Insureds” explored multiple issues involving auto subrogation.

In the property track, David Matejczyk along with nationally known expert Jerry Tindal, PE presented a program “Propane Explosions, Essential Elements to a Successful Investigation and Subrogation Recovery.” The presentation involved investigation and fact patterns on propane explosions, distribution systems, portable cylinders, NFPA 54, NFPA 58 and federal regulations. The program provided a checklist for adjusters on propane explosion cases, theories of liability and discovery needed for a successful recovery.

Finally, at the conclusion of the conference Glenna Roberts was a guest on a panel that explored the development and future of NASP and the subrogation industry. RMI is proud to be a charter member of NASP. Congratulations to NASP, Conference Chairs and all involved on another outstanding conference.
