Only agency owners will be eligible to attend. The average agency owner in attendance will represent a minimum of $3 Million in annual sales production; have proven year-to-year growth; have a minimum of 3 front-line sellers report to them (independent contractors and/or employees); and have a minimum of three years of experience as an agency owner.
