ELC Message donahoe.jpg Dear NIIA Members,

Greetings and Happy Spring to all!

As we transition into the season of April showers and May flowers, I am delighted to share the successful completion of our third session of the esteemed Professional Development Series, featuring Paul Burkett's insightful presentation on "How to Read a Policy." The turnout for this session in Reno was exceptional, marking it as the most well-attended event of the year thus far. It was indeed a privilege to have such a distinguished instructor guide us through the intricacies of policy interpretation. Even for seasoned producers and account managers, the ability to decode policy language accurately remains invaluable, and I trust that all attendees found immense value in this session. Las Vegas agents will be able to attend this session on April 24. There is still time to register.

With one more session remaining in our series, there is still an opportunity to participate. On May 22nd, we eagerly anticipate a presentation by Kasey Conners, Trusted Choice and Ryan Borawski, Liberty Mutual/Safeco, who will delve into the topic of "Hard Market, Still, Value vs Price." As many of us navigate through our first exposure to a challenging hard market environment, the insights shared in this session will undoubtedly prove indispensable in client education and retention efforts. Moreover, the inclusion of a panel discussion promises an engaging exchange of peer-to-peer insights, enriching our learning experience. Sign up here.

In the spirit of continuous improvement, we will soon distribute a survey seeking your feedback on this year's series, monthly meetings, and events. Your input is invaluable in shaping the future direction of ELC, and we deeply appreciate your participation in this process as we strive to enhance our offerings and foster a positive, productive community.

Looking ahead, we are eagerly anticipating the annual NIIA convention scheduled for June 24th – 26th. Our ELC team has curated an exciting lineup of events and activities, including some highly anticipated favorites. We are thrilled to unveil the full schedule soon and look forward to the captivating backdrop of San Diego's picturesque resort setting.

I extend my sincere gratitude to all members who have actively engaged in our events and classes throughout the year. Your enthusiasm and participation have been instrumental in the success of our initiatives, and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for ELC in the coming year.

Warm regards,

Tracy Donahoe
