Free Webinar: Saskatchewan Economic Update

June 7, 2023, 1:30 - 3:00 PM

Insurance doesn’t generate new economic wealth, but it plays a fundamental role in protecting that prosperity. Whether you are a brokerage principal, a producer, or represent an insurance carrier, it is important to keep your finger on the pulse of the emerging local, national, and global trends shaping Saskatchewan’s business climate.

Join three of the province’s leading experts from 1:30 – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7, for a special online panel discussion exploring the state of Saskatchewan’s economy. This session is open exclusively to IBAS member brokers and partners, and will provide a unique forum for participants to ask questions and gain insights on the issues impacting not only your clients but also your own businesses.

Thanks to our 2023 Annual Partners, this Zoom-based webinar is free to attend. Login information will be e-mailed to registrants approximately 24 hours prior to the start time. There is no CE eligible for participation.
