Are you a member of the IIABO?  You should join now.   Why?  Teddy Roosevelt said it best, Every man owes part of his time and money to the business or industry to which he is engaged.  No man has the moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve the conditions within his sphere”.
Not gender neutral, but honestly, where else can an agency make such a modest investment and support the one organization whose sole purpose is to support their business needs?  
Since 1928, the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of Oregon (IIABO) have been working to meet the needs and address the concerns of independent insurance agents.  IIABO provides access to outstanding education programs, legislative and regulatory advocacy at the state and federal levels, products and services and current industry information.
