August 4, 2005

The Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Oregon (IIABO) have announced the highlights of their upcoming annual convention, “United We Stand.” The event will be held at the Tigard Embassy Suites Aug. 28 to Aug. 30.

Featured speakers will include Joel Ario, Oregon Insurance Division and Tom Grau, National President IIABA.

Along with continuing education, golf at beautiful Pumpkin Ridge and a tour of Washington County wineries, the IIABO will be hosting a silent auction to benefit the Christie School. The Christie School provides an array of comprehensive mental health services to children and families. Independent Agents stand united in their desire to help the less fortunate.

The final night annual banquet will feature entertainment by Russ Peak, a nationally renowned illusionist and “mind reader.”

The IIABO has seen a record number of exhibitors and sponsors supporting the convention according to Executive Director Jim Perucca. Peruca said, “The IIABO is really pleased with the level of support our associate members are providing us. The number of exhibitors is up almost 300 percent from last year’s convention.”

All insurance industry personnel are invited to attend. Members of other associations that support the independent agency distribution will receive a 10 percent discount on registration fees.
