Millersville, Md. -- A four-day conference and expo entitled, The State of the Art, will examine the issues affecting the insurance, restoration and environmental industries on September 20-23, 2001, at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago, Illinois.

Sponsored by the Water Loss Institute (WLI) and National Institute of Disaster Restoration (NIDR) of the Association of Specialists in Cleaning & Restoration (ASCR), the conference will target insurance professionals, restorers and damage repair contractors.
