Why WOULDN’T We Join the IIANC PARTNERS Program?!

While sitting here making plans for 2015, I notice all the times in 2014 that my calendar had notes about IIANC.  What a help it has been for UPC Insurance to be a Presidential member of the Big I Partners Program!

Nowhere else could we have gone to be provided such consistent statewide visibility to our North Carolina agency force.  The Program’s package of benefits is extensive and highly useful.  The Partners Program puts out our UPC Insurance logo everywhere you look – convention signage and handouts, websites, magazines and e-newsletters, and even at the Junior Classic golf tournament.  We also receive convention reservation priority, with great savings on our exhibiting expenses.

Also I appreciate my company logo being associated with the other company Partners.  It says that we are a prominent member of North Carolina’s insurance industry;  a meaningful player in a state that needs willing company partners.

All this visibility has naturally led to meeting new agents across the state.  But it has also built up our relationship with the Big I staff.  The industry insight we receive from Allyson and her crew far exceeds the items listed on the Partners Program brochure.

Becoming a Partners Program member is a simple and affordable process.  I could not be more pleased with all the benefits UPC has enjoyed by being a Presidential Level Partner with IIANC.
