As we begin the Holiday Season, we have so much to be grateful for. We are truly blessed. It is important for us to reflect on all the great things we have accomplished this year, while also remaining focused in closing out 2018 strong. The LAAIA, the voice of the independent agent, has been tirelessly preparing for an amazing 2019 filled with more networking opportunities, continuing education classes to enhance our knowledge, legislative efforts in Tallahassee, expansion efforts, and last but certainly not least, our committees have been planning a great Holiday Gala, taking place on Friday, December 7th at the Knights of Columbus in Coral Gables where we will be presenting our fundraising gift to our charity of choice, Holtz Children’s Hospital, where we honor two well deserving individuals with the Insurance Man and Woman of the Year Awards, and many more surprises. I hope to see you all there!
