(Orig Post Date 9/8/2010) Sacramento, CA – The American Agents Alliance announced today that Harvey Rosenfield will be its featured speaker at the 2010 Alliance Convention & Expo at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert.
Rosenfield, founder of the non-profit Consumer Watchdog, is an aggressive and uncompromising advocate, whose blistering and no-holds-barred approach has made him the insurance industry's number one enemy.
"The Alliance puts on the largest P&C event in the West and Harvey has the "wow factor" and electricity that our convention attendees expect to see at the Alliance Convention & Expo," said Michael D'Arelli, executive director of the Alliance.
"Clearly, we do not see eye-to-eye with Harvey on many issues, but civility is not a sign of weakness and we see great value engaging with folks like Harvey with whom we disagree. When you are confident in your position and the strength of your arguments, there is nothing to fear, and we believe that constructive dialogue can actually resolve problems," said D'Arelli.
Is Harvey the greedy villain that gratuitously intervenes in carrier rate filings to line his own pockets, or is he the righteous protector of consumers against corporate rip-offs and government abuse in the courts, Congress, state legislatures and at the ballot box?
Convention attendees will have to decide for themselves at the 2010 Alliance Convention & Expo, September 23-26, 2010.
