President's Message

June 2022

QB chairman's message.jpg 

Time flies when you are having fun is how the saying goes and this past year has truly embodied that.  It has been my complete honor to serve as Chair/President of this great association and I truly value and appreciate all the support that has been given to me.  I'm proud to say we have moved the needle and I feel I was not only a good steward of what was given to me but also that we are handing it off to the next leadership team in a good place.  I'm looking forward to continuing the fight for Nevada and all its stakeholders by supporting the board and NIIA.  So, in the words of the late great Kobe Bryant……… Q Out!

Can you believe it, May is already here and before we know it we will be full fledge into summer!  My note this month is to reminder and call you to action for our 2022 Annual Convention.  A lot of hard work is being put into building an event worth of your attendance 😊. On top of preparing for a great convention, your association is also hard at work strategizing on legislative initiatives and community outreach.  I appreciate each and everyone of you and your support of NIIA.  We are better together – Strength In Numbers

April 2022

QB chairman's message.jpg 

As we transition into spring and witness another change of the seasons with flowers blooming, leaves growing, and the beauty it encompasses, we're reminded that spring needs rain and sunshine for this magical growth to happen. Within NIIA, we have a lot of sunshine to celebrate, but every now again, we have a couple of rainy and cloud-filled days.

To make NIIA reach its full potential, we must appreciate and relish each forecast because we need both to capture the greatness that we have ahead of us in this industry. I hope this edition of the newsletter highlights some of our partnership excellence and provides you with the resources needed for more sunny days.   

Additionally, with April being Diversity Month, we wanted to thank everyone for contributing to furthering inclusion and diversity efforts in your agencies, companies and communities.

Wow, it's March already and some of you are reading this after we have just hosted a successful Tradeshow! 😊  Thank you to all that attended and to those that couldn't make it out just know we are back on track for more events in the coming months.  Want to also thank those that came out to support the Emerging Leaders golf event. 

I'm excited that March is Women's History Month and while we can't possibly recognize each and every woman's accomplishment that has contributed greatly to the advancement of our society, we can give a big round of applause to all of our female insurance rock stars that fight for our industry on a daily basis.  Thank You for your meaningful contributions. 

As we get ready for the spring be on the look out for more news from NIIA.  Be safe and Be Well.

Nevada’s Indoor Mask Mandate Lifted

Earlier today, Governor Sisolak held a virtual press conference to share a COVID-19 update. He also announced the lifting of the indoor mask mandate effective immediately except for locations which provide services to those at higher risk like hospitals and federal facilities. Businesses as well as school districts can choose to continue with their own mandates.

This announcement comes as California, New York, and other states announced dropping their indoor mask mandates. For the most current information and directives for Nevada, check out Nevada Health Response.

This announcement is timely as we prepare for the MEET RENO Tradeshow March 10 at the Atlantis Reno. Nevada Independent Insurance Agents (NIIA) will continue to monitor the latest developments and provide updates to ensure members as well as partners have the most up-to-dateMEET RENO (003).jpg information to remain compliant.

All tradeshow attendees are encouraged to follow safety protocols as set by the state, the event facility, and your individual needs.

 Happy New Year, January 2022

QB chairman's message.jpg

Happy 2022!  If you are like me, you are wondering where did all the time go in 2021 or maybe you were counting the time down until 2021 would end? Either way a new year is here, and we have another 365 days to tackle.  Nevada agents and our association have endured several challenges this past year, but we stand at the ready in 2022 to continue the fight and serve our community.  Whether you're a goal setter or a resolution maker, take some time out early this year to reassess what truly is important to you for this year. As an association we will continue to deliver resources and support to help our members and partners “insure" the great people and state of Nevada.

As the year draws to a close this is a perfect opportunity to say Thank You to all that have supported NIIA this past year. 

I'm so proud of what we have accomplished and excited about the promise of 2022.  

As you come together with family and friends to celebrate the holiday,

take a moment to truly enjoy the moments and take stock of what's really important. Happy Holidays!

Where has the year gone? It seems like the days are going by faster, my workload is getting bigger and my sleep cycle is shorter.  As we transition to fall and Halloween/Nevada Day starts our string of holidays, I'm excited to say that our association is strong and moving forward. This time of year always helps me to realize how grateful I am to serve an association such as this.  Also, as we move into holiday time, this is also a great time of year to reflect on all the things you've accomplished.  For some of us, this time of year might also serve as a reminder that you still have work to do. 😊  Whatever the case please remember what's important in your life and your business and take a moment to enjoy it.
