    PAC Silent Auction: 112th Annual MAMAC Convention

    The 112th Mid-Atlantic Mutual Advantage Convention (MAMAC) takes place from August 4-6, 2019 at the beautiful Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square. The Convention Committee, chaired by Art Meadows of Panhandle Farmers Mutual Insurance, have planned top-notch educational sessions and fun networking events that you have come to know and love.

    The 2019 Convention will host the Silent Auction to benefit the PAMIC PAC, and we need your help. Won’t you consider donating an item or two that can be put up for auction? In year’s past, we have had tickets to professional sporting events, baskets of cheer, electronics, sports equipment, resort stays and vacation weekends. Nothing is too small or too large!

    We ask that you register your donation as we prepare for our Silent Auction. Donations can be brought to the convention registration desk at the Sheraton Station Square beginning at 3pm on Sunday August 4th, 2019.  Prizes will be awarded at lunch on Tuesday afternoon.

    Please do not send any items to the PAMIC offices. We cannot be responsible for transporting items to the Sheraton. We appreciate your donations and look forward to a great convention!

    Featured Speaker

    generously sponsored by 


    Rocky Bleier’s life story - a gripping tale of courage on both the football fields of America and the battle fields of Vietnam – has held audiences in rapt attention for years. Yet, the motivational message behind it, detailing how ordinary people can become extraordinary achievers, defines success in the new American century. Rocky is a 4 time Super Bowl champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers, served at the height of the Vietnam war, received a Purple Heart for his service, and returned to the Steelers for who he is still ranked ninth on the team’s all- time rushing list.
