Event Details for ASNOA Affiliates

This year we are combining all of our regional sales conferences into two large events to make everything bigger and better! That means more attendees, grander speakers, better educational value, larger receptions and more! We've also made it easier to register, pay expenses, sign up for activities. And, last but not least, we've created new scholarship opportunities, contest cash prizes, and more.

Networking with other insurance agents

Enjoy Our New Format

The new agenda will include more: peer-to-peer learning, panels, breakout workshops, round-table discussions, longer breaks, happy hours, entertainment-based receptions, and more.

Basically, we are planning for more activities and less of the humdrum you get at typical sales conferences.

Pre-Plan Your Experience

Register for specific breakout sessions beforehand to better manage your time at the event.

Receive a map of trade show vendors to pre-plan and get the most out of your day.

Browse the many activities that will run alongside our events so you can bring your family too!

Keep Things Affordable

As always, our conferences are free to all ASNOA Affiliates. However, there are still those pesky travel expenses to worry about. ASNOA wants to help alleviate that stress by offering payment plans for lodging. Once you register, let us know your hotel needs and start paying off the cost in your ASNOA Monthly Statement.

Earn a Scholarship

Scholarships will be awarded to ASNOA Affiliates who qualify and span from "most new business premium written" to "most referrals submitted." In addition, we will be offering cash prizes for some friendly, fun competition. You can be the next "Niche Ninja" or "Social Savant" and win $500 cash! And lastly, but not least, there are still the trade show game prizes attendees can win. Stay tuned for this year's big giveaways!
