A few members of our leadership team at OAA recently attended the SIAA Boot Camp, our Chief Learning Officer Karen Youngblood shares her experience at the conference.

"Attending the SIAA ADFS (Agency Development Field Specialist) Boot Camp was tremendously insightful! I better understand the important role that the ADFS plays in growing our members’ businesses through coaching and developing business skills so we can support and enhance success for all. We learned how to use and maximize the investment SIAA has made into technology, tools, processes, marketing, and education – and especially when joined with OAA’s multiple investments in the same areas – it is exciting to think about how we can be a partner with our members in assisting to make their dreams possible. When I think about all that I learned and the strength that comes from belonging to SIAA and OAA, I simply cannot imagine why anyone would want to tackle today’s challenging business climate and manage their growth without collaborating with us. I look forward to this coming year and OAA’s launching new education and training courses, refreshing our content offerings, and supporting our members."
