Trusted Choice® and the Big “I" communications department will oversee Agency Nation and Elevate.

Agency Nation's goal is to deliver content that inspires and informs the independent insurance channel, curating original articles, podcasts, videos or other content that relates to its mission.

“Agency Nation has been producing and disseminating great material and has a strong following of young insurance professionals highly involved and interested in cutting-edge industry improvements and developments," says Bob Rusbuldt, Big “I" president & CEO. “We believe the synergies between Agency Nation, Trusted Choice and the Big 'I' make this arrangement a great fit for the association. We hope and plan to continue to provide Agency Nation followers with engaging content in coming months as we evaluate how best to serve our members."

While there will not be a face-to-face Elevate conference in 2021, the Big “I" is assessing Elevate options for 2022.
