Agent Symposium and Vendor Showcase

Roadmap to Independence is an opportunity for Nationwide Independent Contractors to map out practical strategies on their road to independent agent status. During this dynamic event, participants will have opportunities to learn from and connect with experts from within the independent agency channel. Vendor Representatives and Workshop Leaders will provide blueprints for decision making around systems, technology, carrier contracting, operational best practices and financing. Two focal points of this event include a panel discussion with several of your peer agents who have successfully transitioned, along with a special banquet dinner and entertainment. Read on for important details!
