Southern Agents Conference: A Tradition for 50 Years
Since 1971, state association agents, leaders and executives across the Southeast have been gathering for the Southern Agents Conference workshop in Atlanta's Buckhead to network, share ideas and information, and to discuss successes and common challenges. The annual workshop provides a communication for Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America associations throughout the Southeast (IIABA) in 15 states: Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia.
During the event, agents to relay common concerns to national industry organizations (IIABA, ISO, NCCI, etc.), as they solve common problems through small-group interaction. Members convene annually in Atlanta for the SAC Workshop, which attracts 250 agents, colleagues and family. IIABA Officers and staff address the group, which then break out into small focus and discussion groups: State Officers, National Directors, State Execs, Young Agents, Association Products & Services, Commercial Lines, Education, Legislative Affairs, Personal Lines, and Technology.
Company, Broker and Vendor colleagues participate—both sponsors and as active contributors to the many lively discussions which are the heart of the Workshop--working together to advance the independent agency system throughout the Southeast.
