What do attendees LOVE about YALI? 

"Loved the seminar about perpetuation. I didn't realize how many other agents were in a similar situation to mine across the country (being a 2nd generation agent)."

"How to connect with your clients and really focus on what you do the best and let that shine."

"The round table on Saturday Morning. It was the most beneficial thing I've done at a conference.

 "Sharing ideas with other states and hearing about other fundraising and events was great!"

"The Young Agents Committees have a huge impact on the future careers of the members!"
