Short Recap of Big Event ’09


I did want to provide a little recap of what happened during the Big event.  I have some great  topics for posts inspired by convention planned for the next couple of weeks, but here are a few one liners about what happened day to day while we were there.

Thursday the first class of PIP’s arrived bright and early to start their journey as Personal Insurance Professionals with Kathy Silvia and Gregg Leonard from Commerce Insurance stopped by at lunch-time to wish them well. Us staffers were relegated to floor tile duty. What you thought maybe they stuck themselves to the floor?

Friday was marked by a huge number of walk in registrations and a packed luncheon to listen to Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo. Irene spent the day Streaming Live and I lead my very first session in the computer lab.

Saturday was really all about Mort….and you all seemed to agree. We had a lot of fun on Saturday between the cackling brooms, the very packed E&O sessions, and all the fun in the trade show. I personally had some really great discussion with some member agents about social media and my husband was thrilled to talk to people about eBay.

People were busy right up until we all got our groove on at the Safety Zone reception…Mort included of course. My only regret was that I never made into the Trade Show while it was open. Next year!

Thanks again for making this event a great one. Participation counts and our members, company sponsors, and speakers do a great job of engaging with one another.
