As a Mainstay Insurance Brokerage client, you get some perks of my work within the industry. One of those is free attendance at Canadian Group Insurance Brokers educational events (the association I started in 2003).
We have two events in Vaughan (Hwy 400 and 407 area) coming up in May and June. Both are full day events aimed at benefit advisors, insurers, TPA’s and others in the industry, so you get “fly on the wall” inside perspective. These are a great way to increase knowledge, and if you’re in HR even get education credits.
The first, on May 8th, has a number of speakers including a discussion around renewals, and an employer panel sharing their stories, needs and expectations of advisors and insurers. Details are HERE.
The second, on June 19th, is a smaller workshop on Building and using a benefit plan administration checklist. As a client you’ve had this checklist explained to you (if not, come out for sure) and had it included in every years renewal package. This workshop gets into the legal cases, taxation issues, areas of risk and employment/HR issues that employers see every day. Details are HERE.
If either of these events are of interest and you can spend the day with us, please let me know and I’ll book a spot for you free of charge.
Special Note: If you have HR consultants, friends, and/or business associates (best if they have a plan or want to start one) that may want to learn more about benefits, please feel free to share the info and have them reach out to me. We find many are trying to find an advisor that specializes in benefits and don’t know where to turn. I may not add too many new clients a year, but the room will have some great ones that can help, if I can’t.
