New Insurance Association Forms in California

March 30, 2010

The Broker Insurance Group (BIG) announced the formation of its flagship chapter serving insurance professionals of the Inland Empire area of California. Under the leadership of Sharron Varga, a broker and long-serving member of several industry organizations, BIG was formed to provide a voice that represents the common interests of all brokers and agents, according to the new group.

“With a focus on providing tangible opportunities to increase success through information, education and relationship building, BIG has launched an aggressive campaign to bring together the most professional brokers and agents with the carriers and vendors that value their contributions and recognize their importance in California’s insurance marketplace,” the association said.

The group said it has developed inroads into other markets in Southern California, and will soon expand into Northern California.

BIG will be hosting an inaugural Banner Fair in Ontario, Calif., on May 5, where current and prospective members are invited to meet the carriers and vendors who support the broker/agent community and take part in opportunities for continuing education, carrier appointments and to discuss the issues most important to their business.
