    POSTPONED: After much consideration, PLRB has decided to reschedule the 2020 PLRB Technology & Claims Symposium until summer 2021. While we were on board to hold it as a live meeting this year, with company travel bans and the uncertainty around the ability to hold large meetings, we have made the decision to reschedule and look forward to holding this meeting next summer. We will continue to monitor all factors, yet are hopeful our Regional and Large Loss Conferences will go forward as planned in 2020.
