Portland, Ore., March 12, 2020 – WFG National Title Insurance Company (WFG NTIC), a Williston Financial Group (WFG) company and full-service, national title insurance underwriter, made the decision to postpone its “2020 WFG Summit” two weeks ago and today announced that the event dates have officially changed from March 15-19 to September 21-24, 2020. The rescheduling comes in response to growing concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVD-19). The conference will remain at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando, Florida as originally planned.
According to a statement issued at the time of the initial postponement by WFG Executive Chairman and Founder Patrick F. Stone, “While we sincerely regretted the need to do so, we felt it was incumbent on us to take proactive precautionary measures to ensure that our agents and WFG team members remain safe and protected from potential exposure to the virus.”
With its call to “Learn, Share, Implement,” the annual WFG Summit is designed to help title agents grow their knowledge, skills and networks. After a day for arrival and registration, each of the remaining three days will have its own distinct focus.
