Four Reasons why the YA Summer Conference is a MUST ATTEND event!

This year’s Young Agents Summer Conference is July 27-29th at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Front Hotel. It is sure to be a memorable event that you don’t want to miss. Here is a countdown of four BIG reasons why you will want to attend:

4. Because learning new insurance selling “tricks” is always a good thing, especially if it can give you a leg up over competitors!

3. Because learning is good, but learning while simultaneously being at the beach sure does beat a day at the office!

2. Because learning while at the beach is nice, but playing corn hole against agents and company reps is fun networking!

  • 1. Because learning while at the beach and networking while playing games is enjoyable, but rocking out with The Molly Ringwalds is something you’ll always remember!

Don’t miss out on your chance to learn, network, have fun, and rock out at this year’s Young Agents Summer Conference!

You can register online or download the form. For more information check out the AIIA website.

121st AIIA Convention Recap

Live Music, Tradeshow, Motivation and Loads of Laughs

The 121st Annual Convention & Tradeshow is in the books! The weather was perfect for a poolside welcome dinner that included a local band called Mr. Big & the Rhythm Sisters. Our group danced the night away and completed the evening with door prizes.

On Thursday, our company reps hosted the Tradeshow where over 60 agents visited each booth for their chance to win the Agents Grand Prize of $1,000. Brad Young with Insurance Planning in Anniston was our lucky winner, thanks to Berkley Southeast Insurance Group for sponsoring the prize. As soon as the tradeshow finished, Matt Jones motivated the crowd with his “Life’s A Marathon” story that brought them the VICTORY!

On Friday, IIABA Chair-elect Vaughn Graham installed our new officers during our Business Session and afterwards, while the sun was shining bright…we crowned new cornholes champs! Friday evening included a seated-dinner and Comedian Tim Cavangh, who left the crowd rolling in laughter. The draw down was better than ever with a new twist. Those numbers that missed the $100 drawing got put back into the pot for a $200 prize. Once it was paired down to the final four, the crowd was able to enourage one of the four to keep going, so Jeremy Smith with Salter Insurance Agency was knocked out and Don Boatwright (ATA Work Comp Fund), Celina Pence (ICAT) and Brittany Kruszewski (Coastal Professional Insurance) decided to keep the rest!!!

In-coming President, Haig Wright announced next years convention will be at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama June 24-26, 2018!!!
