The Insurance Center hosted the Annual Employee Benefits Seminar, focusing on providing cutting-edge information to over 130 local business owners.

The seminar took place at the Collins Auditorium, School of Nursing Building and there were two seminars held—one was for large employers and the other for small employers. This is the 5th year The Insurance Center has provided this service to help businesses to stay up-to-date with legislative changes and provide resources to help them navigate the changes. This event helped address many of the questions Human Resource and Benefits Administrators are facing today and it was provided at no cost to area business owners. This is an example of how The Insurance Center continues to use value-added services to enhance the communities in which we serve.
