PIA Oregon-Idaho’s annual 3-day conference is back. So it’s time to connect and reconnect, to see old friends, make new ones and have a little fun! This year’s conference is in the shadow of Oregon’s majestic Mt. Hood and is at the Mt. Hood Oregon Resort in Welches, Oregon.

Put the dates on your calendar and sign up to attend — NOW.

Mt. Hood Oregon Resort

Welches, Oregon

May 17 – 19, 2023

The beauty of that location is the location. In Oregon, it’s a very easy drive from agents, agency personnel and company personnel living on the West side of the state and the same people living on the East side.

Idaho agents, agency owners, CSRs and company personnel will find the drive to Mt. Hood Oregon Resort an easy drive as well.

The same goes for Washington members wanting to attend the Oregon event. Wherever you live in those three states, it’s time to get together where we enjoy one another, learn what’s new and come away informed.

PIA Oregon-Idaho has a great lineup of guest speakers including Oregon Insurance Commissioner Andrew Stolfi and Kenton Brine with NW Insurance Council. This year’s legislative agenda — and it’s a tough one in Oregon — is at the forefront of this year’s event. The two men will get you up to speed on what’s been happening to date.

Plus, we alway’s incorporate lots of networking time and fun into the conference with an annual golf tournament, a happy hour with exhibitors and and a bingo-poker night packed with prizes.

And, as always, PIA Oregon-Idaho presents the annual agent and company person of the year awards at the general session.

Here are some details:

The general session: Oregon Insurance Commissioner Andrew Stolfi is our guest speaker. He will deliver a state of the industry update on the issues that affect you and your agency.

Following his presentation is a legislative update from our very active PIA Lobbyist, Lana Butterfield and Kenton Brine, President of the NW Insurance Council. The two will keep you abreast of the broader industry trends and issues as well as PIA Legislative committee update.
