Do you remember a time in your professional insurance career when money was tight? For some it was those first few years of your agency, while for others, it was and is those times when you were a solo practicioner trying to grow.

How helpful, would it have been to go to an event like INNOVAT18N where people are freely shared ideas that helped you grow your agency? How appreciative would you have been to someone else for selflessly helping you grow your agency?

That is what INNOVAT18N is all about! There are many who have expressed a desire to come to Phoenix in January to learn from their peers, but they are unable to commit financially to coming. For many, the cost of the ticket and the hotel stay are just too much for them to afford.

Our goal is $18,000. Our hope is to sponsor at least 25 agents by purchasing their event ticket, and paying for their first night in the hotel.

Can you help them? Collectively, as a group that is build on the principals of selflessness, innovation, and collaboration, can you donate to helping someone else come to INNOVAT18N? Maybe you can give $10, $100, $1000, or more. We don't want to limit anyone from coming, and we don't want people to say "I can't afford it this year". We want to give as much opportunity to others as possible.

Whatever you can do, it would be appreciated! #IAOABetterTogether
