Annual Golf Events
March 26, 2014, Knights of Columbus Building, Columbia, Mo.
While not an official part of the Small Agency Conference, this event has become a pre-conference tradition sponsored by MAIA's Young Agents Committee. This informal dinner is an opportunity to relax, get acquainted and enjoy some fine cuisine prepared by the young agents and their friends. For those not into crawfish, the menu also includes smoked meats and various side dishes. Refreshments are also included. Discounted tickets may be purchased in advance on the Small Agency Conference Registration Form.

Small Agency Conference
March 27-28, 2014, Holiday Inn, Columbia, Mo.
This annual conference, which began in 1990, is designed to meet the unique education and networking needs of small to mid-sized agencies—agencies that write a lot of small accounts, and not as many large commercial accounts. Consequently, these agencies come from both metropolitan as well as small towns and rural areas. Includes a trade show with nearly 100 companies exhibiting, timely education programs, CIC and CISR conferment ceremonies, and various opportunities for networking, and much company involvement. This event is traditionally held in Columbia, Mo.
Our 2013 Small Agency Conference featured keynote speaker Mark Holmes. There were nearly 300 agents in attendance and once again, the trade show was an incredible success.

Day at the Capitol
March 4, 2015, Capitol Plaza Hotel, Jefferson City, Mo.
Designed to give members and others the opportunity to learn more about insurance legislation being considered by the Missouri Legislature, and time to meet with elected officials to express their views.
With members of the MAHU and NAIFA-MO joining in, the 2014 Day at the Capitol drew a large gathering of interested parties, and agents were present in droves outside the House of Representatives' chamber, speaking to their reps and promoting the industry's interests.
