Insurance Think Tank
We're all familiar with the speed dating premise - gather some information, share some information, move on and repeat. In this session you'll have the opprtunity to "speed date" through hot insurance topics and other areas of interest important to running or working in an agency. You'll rotate table-to-table with each table topic led by a moderator. Come prepared to gather great tips, share your ideas and get to know other association members and how you can be of help to each other in the future.
