It’s been a few weeks since my last tradeshow, but things are picking up again over the next week as we head into last half of September and early October.
This past week I had the pleasure of attending the convention at the Prairie Meadows Casino & Resort in Altoona, IA.
The two day convention featured several informative sessions and speakers including, Steve Anderson, President of Anderson Network, Inc. Steve’s session was titled “Agency of the Future”. Steve drilled down on the steps an independent agent should take to be efficient and relevant in the future in the Industry today, and in the future. All of the steps involve further use of technology. He did a great job bringing everyone into the fold in an enthusiastic and fun way.
Other sessions included: Run Your Agency Like a Boss, Understanding Workers’ Compensation Classification Codes and Experience Modification.
Throughout the convention, I encountered several networking opportunities with agents in need of agricultural markets. Iowa is essentially a mirror of Indiana- both in terrain and business profile. I also made some new friends discussing RSG UM’s Alternative Energy capabilities as well as our Cyber Liability products.
I had a great time meeting with several insurance professionals, and thank you to everyone I had the pleasure of speaking with.
