The National Association of Surety Bond Producers (NASBP) is the association of and resource for surety bond producers and allied professionals. NASBP producers specialize in providing surety bonds for construction contracts and other purposes to companies and individuals needing the assurance offered by surety bonds. NASBP is solely dedicated to the needs and interests of surety bond producers and serves a membership with personnel of over 5,000 surety agents and brokers.
A book to commemorate 75 years requires a good deal of research, planning and close collaboration. Working closely with NASBP, we identified and gathered historical artifacts and text to develop a full, year-by-year timeline of NASBP’s major events and milestone achievements since its founding in 1942. Photographs of interesting artifacts were taken at the association’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. to ensure that nothing would be lost or damaged in transit. The base text was provided by NASBP and extensively edited and rewritten by Schum Creative for inclusion in the final book.
The 64-page perfect-bound book was unveiled to over 500 members at the 2017 Annual Meeting & 75th Anniversary Celebration in Boca Raton, Florida in late April 2017. The timeline portions of the book were abbreviated to appear in a 6-panel, traveling exhibit installed at the event.
