One of the biggest benefits of being involved with the iLEAD Program is networking with other young professionals that are at a similar stage in your career. Through iLEAD, you can form friendships and relationships
that will last a lifetime. In addition to the annual conference for iLEAD Agents, we hold networking events
in locations all around the state to make it easier for you to form connections with other young agents
in your area. Check back often for local networking events near you and follow iLEAD on Facebook for updates!


This is the state's premier insurance industry conference and trade show, offering maximized learning and networking opportunities while minimizing time spent away from the office.
