Weekly Update: December 8, 2016

  Our State EO20 group met this week in Tampa.  During the first week of each December each year, the executive officers of state HBA’s gather together to discuss needs and share information.  HBAI Executive Officer Jay Iverson is chairman of the group.  Our breakfast sponsor was Bonded Builders, who also took us out later that evening on a 106′ yacht owned by the president of the Bankers Insurance Group (B.I.G.) – the parent organization.  It was a taste of a lifestyle that none of us in the non profit world will experience very often and overall a great meeting.  Such a wealth of information in one room.
