GTA Employees Awarded Professional Insurance Designation

By November 6, 2013January 24th, 2020No Comments


We’d like to congratulate, Tony Purvis, Tyson Jordening and Waid Vontz, all with the Gary Thompson Agency, Inc. as they have been awarded the Associate in Insurance Production (AIP) professional designation by the Independent Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA).  The designation was conferred on Tony, Tyson and Waid following their completion of a rigorous, year-long course of study at the Midwest Elite Force Sales Training School based in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Tony, Tyson and Waid completed 12 full days of classroom study in Nebraska, which was augmented by extensive readings and practical application of communication and organizational skills back home in their individual agencies. A key component of the program is learning how to help insurance consumers recognize and deal with the financial risks in their lives.

The Elite Force Sales Training program is a national training program sanctioned by IIABA, and the Midwest School is co-sponsored by eight Midwestern IIABA state insurance associations, including Nebraska.

Founded in 1896, the IIABA is the nation’s oldest and largest national association of independent insurance agents and brokers, representing a network of more than 300,000 agents, brokers and their employees nationally. As an IIABA member, Gary Thompson Agency, Inc. offers its customers a choice of policies from a variety of insurance companies, in all lines of insurance – property, casualty, life and health. With IIABA and its members, the consumer comes first.
