Emerging Brokers Council


In September 2019, the IBAS board of directors approved the creation of the IBAS Emerging Brokers Council. This member advisory committee replaced the former Saskatchewan Young Brokers Network, which was established in 2003.

The council's mandate is segmented into three equally important directives:

  • Ensure the unique perspectives of young and emerging insurance brokers are represented in IBAS activities, within IBAS policy directives, and at industry functions;
  • Promote the insurance broker profession as a modern, rewarding, first-choice career; and
  • Champion association-wide fundraising activities in support of IBAS’s Annual Charity Partner.
