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.

The deadline for the hotel cut off date is June 26th, so book your room today! (Hotel Code AYO)


AIIA Annual Convention & Trade Show

Since all BIIA members are part of the Alabama Independent Insurance Agents association, it is only fitting to let our members know about the upcoming AIIA Annual Convention.

Though attendees will benefit from the conference sessions and trade show, convention organizers made sure to include time to socialize and network. The Welcome Reception and Dinner Pool Party will have live entertainment. Then there is the Corn Hole tournament and get togethers on the beach. Check out the Schedule of Events to see the specific times.

As a special treat, this year convention organizers decided to offer BOGO rates to Member Agencies. Register one agent at the full registration cost of $250, and the second licensed agent from the same agency will have no registration fee!
