It’s almost time for PIA Oregon/Idaho’s EXPO. This year we’re in Eugene at the Eugene Hilton on June 21 and June 22. The move from Portland to Eugene is to make it easier for more agents from the Willamette Valley, Southern, Eastern and Southwestern Oregon to attend.
And we are adding a day of golf fun at Emerald Valley Golf Course on Monday, June 20. Tee off begins at 1pm ... and there will be prizes.
This year’s EXPO offers dynamic education starting on Tuesday the 21st, and the general session with a new format and the trade show are on the 22nd. Our Keynote Speaker is Steve Donahue. His topic — Developing Your Narrative Intelligence — is designed to get you ready for the EXPO Trade Show.
With EXPO, PIA Oregon/Idaho has reinvented agent-company communication. In the past mass contact meant a three-day convention. Three days away from the office for an agent or company personnel is painful. And when our members — tired of the choice of three days or nothing — spoke, we responded and EXPO was born.
EXPO is about access, convenience, cost — and most importantly — the experience and making connections. Networking at EXPO is concentrated business to business and education programming for all retail insurance agents, agency and company personnel. And it’s done in one-day if needed, or two if you want more and not three days as in the past.
