IIABO 2011 83rd Annual Convention & Trade Show

"TAKING THE LEAD"

Title Sponsors: Liberty Northwest / Safeco Insurance
Members of the Liberty Mutual Group


 
 This was the largest IIABO convention in the last 15 years and we would like to thank Liberty Northwest and Safeco for again participating as our “Title Sponsors".  We also want to thank all the other sponsors and exhibitors who help make the convention a success.  Our long term goal is to continue to increase participation by annually lowering registration fees while increasing value.
This year we were able to offer two quality presentations.
 
The MarshBerry Group showed us how you can different your agency from the competition.  Acquisitions and mergers have eliminated traditional differentiation based on carrier representation.  Today agents must differentiate themselves both from the independent agent down the street, but also from the direct writers and on line providers.
 
Patrick Galvin’s workshop reminded us that we have to engage our customers in both the real and “virtual” world.  Properly done, this will help agents attract new business, retain existing customers and create a flow of referrals.

We also sponsored "Out to Pasture Sanctuary" at our raffle this year.  They are a not-for-profit (501 (c)(3)) no kill sanctuary located in Estacada, Oregon, dedicated to providing permanent housing and care for a variety of abused, neglected or abandoned animals including large farm animals, pigs, rabbits, chickens and dogs. 



On Friday, September 9, the IIABO staff delivered a check in the amount of $1,655.00!
