With great honor, we presented the Fernando Gimenez, Jr. CPCU Man of the Year, and the Mary B. Fernandez Woman of the Year awards to two very well respected and deserving recipients, Mr. Alexander Dopazo, CIC (Past President of the LAAIA in 2013) and the Honorable Katherine Fernandez-Rundle (State Attorney). Their commitment to our industry is unparalleled and it was a unanimous decision when their names were mentioned on the ballots. For everyone that attended our Holiday Gala, the LAAIA would like to send a warm “Thank You”, for your continued support and we hope you had a good time. The LAAIA could not be any more thankful to these event sponsors as well: AFS-IBEX a division of MetaBank, Cole, Scott & Kissane, PA, Edison Insurance Company/Florida Peninsula Insurance Company, Risk Placement Services, Inc , SCU, and Selective Insurance Company.
It was with great pleasure that we donated a check in the amount of $27,500 to the Holtz Children’s Hospital. This accomplishment could not have been done without the generous donations and hard work of our Charity Committee (Lissette Perez, Jackie Ordonez, Jackie Pena & Bert Irigoyen). Thank you to our Platinum Sponsors: Security Premium Finance & Florida Insurance Agency of Miami, Gold Sponsor: Wright Flood, & Silver Sponsor: People’s Trust Insurance Company.
As 2016 comes to a close, we strive towards bigger and better things for 2017. Expect a great lineup of monthly meetings, education, member benefits and most importantly our Annual Convention and Trade Fair.
On behalf of the LAAIA Board of Directors, we would like to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
