Kevin Regan, director of corporate and incentive sales for Silversea Cruises, has been elected to a three-year term as a member of the Hospitality Partner Advisory Council (HPAC), effective January 2014. He is the first member of the cruise industry to be appointed to the council.

HPAC is a group that represents suppliers who partner with Financial and Insurance Conference Planners (FICP). FICP is an association that provides access to education, experience and resources targeting the needs of financial services and insurance meeting planners from across North America. HPAC provides advice and guidance to FICP's board of directors on issues related to the hospitality industry.

"I'm truly honored to be a member of HPAC," said Regan. "I look forward to playing a role in encouraging the association's growth and further strengthening the relationship between the hospitality partners and the FICP board of directors."
