CGIB Event Calendar

CGIB seminars will have a different look for 2020…

  • We are starting seminars in both Calgary and Vancouver and these will be an annual events if attendance is good, so please spread the word.
  • We are moving to a FULL-DAY seminar format so you can book for breakfast and the morning session, OR lunch and the afternoon session OR both. 
  • Each speaker provides a useful handout you can use in your practice today.
  • We will continue to be the most thought provoking, benefit focussed, advisor aimed, interactive educational events in Canada.

“Amazing seminar yesterday.

I think the best education is education that you APPLY and build into your business processes immediately. I have spent the entire day creating disclosures that will help clients get coverage that they can rely on, while protecting me from unnecessary liability.

Thank you for making me a better broker!”                RK – Advisor & CGIB Member

THE PROVINCIAL DIFFERENCES

Monday March 29th  2:00-3:30pm EST  REPEATED AGAIN  Thursday April 8th  2:00-3:30pm EST  

A panel of advisors will present the things you need to know about coverage in each province (most specifically drugs). We’ll share links to provide ongoing resources for you to reference as your groups expand.

BENEFIT RENEWALS

Monday April 19th 1:00-2:30pm EST  

A panel of advisors will share how they handle renewals, do their calculations and more.  If you’re not 100% on renewals, you should be here. If you are up on it, then you should still be here as maybe you’re still missing things.

No need to register, no cost, no CE credits.
