As I sat back and thought about what to write about this month, I couldn't help but think about Thanksgiving and its meaning. Depending on what story you read, the tradition of Thanksgiving was a time dedicated to putting aside our differences and sharing a meal to give thanks. I'll stick to that story as I think this year more than ever we need to come together as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic and now the most controversial election in US history. I don't care what side of the isle you sit on, or the color of your skin, or god you believe in, your NIIA board and I respect and appreciate you for being a part of our organization. We are a group that welcomes and supports diversity and that will never change.
In keeping with that theme, November is officially partner appreciation month. As Susan best said on our social channel, It is you that brings markets to our independent agents, it is you that brings solutions to our independent agents and it is you that brings opportunities to our independent agents. We thank you for the support over all these years and look forward to showing you our appreciation once we can be together again.
On the business front, we have made the difficult decision to further postpone our tradeshow. Be on the lookout for the April “Save The Date", we are hopeful to have the opportunity to be together by then.
Until next month…. Eat, drink, and be thankful.
