Tech Trends + Resources for the Independent Agent

Welcome to ACT News

Summer is winding down and we are working like crazy to finalize the ACT Tech Summit scheduled for October 2, in Nashville.  We hope you're able to join us for an excellent day of content from over 20 of our industry's best professionals.  While our on-line registration has closed, please let us know if you have plans to be in Nashville for Applied Net and would like to join us.  We might just know somebody who knows somebody who can register you on-site. 

Beyond planning for our Tech Summit,  we have onboarded several new members and appointed new members to our ACT Committee since our last issue.   As of September 1, we are honored to welcome Angela Ford from IIAT and Michael J. Vance from Batts and Associates in Alabama as they join Cindy Hower - KS, Angela Ripley - MD, Shannon Churchill – IL, and Tom Chamberlin – MT to make up our 2022-2023 ACT Committee.  We are eager and excited to work with this group to help member agencies better leverage technology to enable their business strategies.   We'd also like to take a moment to thank Paul Peoples – FL and Will Infantine - NH for their extended service on the ACT Committee as their terms expired this year.   We are grateful for their insight, support, and guidance.

Thank you to our friends at ACORD, AUGIE Group, ID Federation, Liberty Mutual/Safeco, and Synatic for contributing to this issue.   Stay tuned to our next issue as we plan a full recap of the ACT Tech Summit.
