U.S. groups will be working with a Barbados group to produce a joint conference in Jamaica.

The Life Office Management Association Inc., Atlanta, and LIMRA International, Windsor, Conn., say they will be joining with the Insurance Association of the Caribbean, St. Michael, Barbados, to sponsor the 2006 Caribbean Insurance Conference.

The 4-day event is scheduled to start June 4 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

LOMA and LIMRA are working to develop a life insurance track for the conference.

The joint conference with the Caribbean insurance association will replace a conference LOMA and LIMRA have organized in the past for Caribbean financial services executives, LOMA and LIMRA say.
