The 2022

AIIAB Annual Insurance Convention

was a HUGE success! Thank you to everyone who joined us in Sitka this year. A huge thank you to

Tim Regillio from Sayata who gave a super-great class on the importance and necessity of Cyber Insurance. We will also introduce new cyber definitions via Thinking Thursday. And if you weren’t able to attend, his CE Powerpoint presentation will be available next week only thru our Stargate portal. It will  provide tools, info and sales techniques to help you and your customers understand why cyber is crucial to any

business insurance package. Here are some new cyber definitions you may not have heard of:

Spear Phishing:  “Spear phishing” is a type of phishing campaign that targets a specific person or group and often will include information known to be of interest to the target, such as current events or financial documents.

What is the difference between phishing and spear phishing: Spear phishing is a targeted attack on a specific person or organization, whereas general phishing campaigns are sent to a large volume of people.

Winners of the Solid Gold Night!

Every year I think, “how will we top last year’s party?” And every year, the costumes are seriously killer. SO KILLER! This year’s winners were:

Best Female: Kristin Taylor as the Heisman Trophy

Best Male: Peter Mores as Golden Times Rapper

Best Office: Davies-Barry as The Golden Girls

And a new category this year was Best Couple (because they looked amazing!) The Binkley’s from HUB FBX!

Thanks to everyone who brought their best! Here’s a few of the pix, and I will post more to Facebook tonight. Thank you to TNT Sports and Trophies in Anchorage for getting this done for us, and to the Bayview Pub and Restaurant for hosting!

TIC is the AIIAB 2022 Associate Member of the Year-Thanks to You! 

Upended. Blown-away. Super-surprised. Caught completely off-guard. These are just a few of the adjectives that I can honestly say went through our heads when we went to the front of the stage last Thursday night, because we were up there to present the AIIAB 2022 Member Award to Toi Giles of HUB Juneau…not to collect one for ourselves!

Thank you to our entire team for helping us win this award. We know we have the best team in Alaska! And mostly, thank you to our amazing customers. As I said that night, we have the best association and we have the privilege to serve the best state, and we will continue to work our tails off to make sure your customers have insurance when they need it.

One final note-those are Pete Mores’ crutches…not mine. 🙂

It’s about to get…Personal. 

Last week we announced we will be working with American Modern in the next few weeks! We will send out an announcement when we are ready to go live-stay tuned! Thank you to our new friends Elvia and Deana from American Modern who joined us in Sitka to kick off our new working relationship!

In November, our popular Dwelling and Personal Lines product will be getting changes and some new upgrades. We will be hosting some in-person and virtual training classes for both options on November 9.
