President's Message

Dear Valued Members,

I would like to thank you all for your continued support of the San Fernando Valley Independent Brokers and Agents.

As a young boy my Dad taught me many valuable lessons. He would say “always do more than is expected of you” “Do the right thing, even when nobody’s watching” And “Always treat others, the way you want to be treated”

I learned those lessons at a very young age, and they have stuck with me and are a part of who I am today.

As the President of IBA-SFV those lessons will apply to everything we do as a board. Our board will passionately support IIABA-Cal and the work that is done on a State and National level.

We will continue to strive for greater success and relationships between Retail Agencies, Carriers, and Wholesalers. As partners working together with Carriers/Wholesalers/Vendors, we build strong bonds and relationships that help us all on a daily basis. Without your commitment to our association, we do not succeed in the important work that we do.

As I have said many time, we work in a great, profitable, successful industry that provides us a great way of life and we are all very thankful. I am a strong believer of giving back, and never forgetting where you came from! At IBA-SFV we are committed to helping those less fortunate. Through our work with multiple charities, and multiple events during the year, will continue to support and give back to those in need.

Coming out of the Covid nightmare, below are some of the events we are planning to have live in person

April 2022                            IBA-SFV Monthly Happy Hour (Monty’s Steak House 3rd Thursday of every Month)

May 2022                             Annual Golf Tournament (May 16th Braemar Country Club)

August 2022                        Fabulous Monte Carlo Night

November 2022                Annual Company Appreciation Night

December 2022                General Meeting

In order to make these events and everything we do throughout the year, we are looking for you involvement and support. I invite you to come to all these and other events to have fun, build relationships, support our cause, and give back to those in need.

Those who have supported us over the years, I would like to thank you very much. We look for your continued support, and I would love to hear from you if you would like to see things done differently, if you have other needs or idea’s… We are a team, which means we work together to achieve a common goal.

Please feel free to contact me any time with questions, concerns, ideas, or just to say hello.

Together we will make Insurance fun and exciting again!!
