"I Belong"
November YAT Mixer
"Wine, Pizza & New Business"
Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Join us for some wine, great Chicago-style pizza and our three panelists.  By attending you'll hear about tips to getting your clients prepared for the best possible insurance exam experience and more importantly the most favorable results!  You'll also leave with tips and tricks to manuver the new business process from the perspective of a new business manager.  And finally wisdom will be imparted from a member of a quiet but very successful career producer's team on how to get the most tedious part of underwriting done in a shorter amount of time; retrieval of medical records.
BE SURE TO BRING YOUR ASSISTANT!  This is great material for them to hear to help you get your business through underwriting as efficiently as possible.
SPACE IS LIMITED!  Register today to make sure you and your assistant have a seat!
